Sports Medicine Imaging, An Issue of Radiologic Clinics of North America
Michael Tuite, MD
Musculoskeletal injuries are an unfortunate byproduct of an active population. Therefore imaging of these injuries is essential for the treatment, rehabilitation, and return to play. This issue reviews topics such as pediatric upper and lower extremity injuries, skiing and snow boarding injuries, overhead throwing injuries, spine injuries, and hip injuries.
"There are three chapters on specific sports that have not had much previous exposure in the radiological literature, three chapters covering some challenging areas ( the hip, the groin and overhead throwing injuries), three chapters on paediatric injuries and a final chapter on the female athlete...despite the over-emphasis on MRI, I consider this volume to be a valuable additions to the review literature on sports medicine."
