Because it has the advantages of being stable, easy to use, nonionizing, and capable of recording activities from deep muscles without cross talk from adjacent muscles [25], ultrasonography has been used to detect muscle thickness changes [26-27], pennation angle [28-29], cross-sectional area [30-31], and muscle fascicle length [32-34] both in static and quasi-static conditions during the past decades.
Although biochemical properties (myosin ATPase activity) are important in determining maximal shortening velocity of muscle (Barany, 1967), however, muscle architectural characteristics such as muscle fascicle length have been shown to play an important role in modulating biochemical effects (Blazevich, 2006; Sacks and Roy, 1982; Spector et al.

In addition, at this joint angle muscle fascicles were at a configuration that allowed for the full visualization of the muscle fascicles in most evaluations at the ultrasound images.
