Sports & Musculoskeletal Imaging
Sports Imaging is the branch of radiology which caters for athletes of all shapes and sizes, ranging from the Olympic competitor, national footballer, serious marathon runner, recreational jogger and people who simply wish to improve their general fitness. Sports Imaging focuses on Musculoskeletal Imaging and interventional techniques.
Whilst regular exercise is well known for its benefits, sporting activities can sometimes result in injury.
Sporting injuries are generally divided into two main groups:
- Those which are due to overuse i.e. repetitive action, such as tendinosis, arthritis and stress fractures
- Those which are traumatic, such as a shoulder dislocation, or fracture
