Radiologists who specialize in sports medicine and orthopedic imaging are trained to diagnose athletes who have suffered an injury on the playing field. These commonly include ligament tears and bone fractures. For instance, when a soccer player experiences a torn ACL or MCL. Our musculoskeletal radiologists are well-versed in the latest imaging technology and can diagnose your sports injury correctly the first time. Patients are treated in a comfortable environment by a professional and friendly staff.
Treatment of Non-Athletic Injuries
Our team of orthopedic radiologists can also screen, diagnose and treat a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, which may not always be the result of a sports injury. Musculoskeletal pain can occur in the joints, soft tissues, muscles, nerves and other systems that support the human skeleton. A radiologic exam can quickly confirm the cause of pain.
Conditions diagnosed by orthopedic radiologists range from tendonitis to osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Common symptoms of these disorders include stiffness, aching and swelling anywhere from the neck down to your feet.
Through state-of-the-art imaging technology, we can use MRIs, CT scans, fluoroscopy and ultrasounds to properly diagnose a sports injury. Minimally invasive, image-guided techniques are commonly used to treat such orthopedic conditions. Our radiologists offer the following services and more within Sports Medicine.
- Direct Arthrography
- Hip Ultrasound
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Knee
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Shoulder
- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
