Brief Answer:
Normal Gastrosoleus complex muscle delineation

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Thanks for the query.

Usually muscle definition can be noticed as possible indentation on the sides. It is nothing but the Gastrosoleus muscle complex being delineated clearly.

If you have any problem like pain, swelling is difficulty walking, do let me know.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
