Figure showing the anatomical markers used to identify the vastus lateralis injection site on the anterolateral thigh. The injection site is halfway down the vastus lateralis, which is the muscle on the outside of the thigh. Markers include the greater trochanter, and the lateral femoral condyle – the injections site is about halfway between these two levels.
