Sports radiology meets
sports medicine

A synergetic approach (1+1=3)


Dear colleagues, dear friends.
It is with great pride that we introduce our annual ESSR approved course on Imaging in Sports Injuries entitled “Sports radiology meets sports medicine”
In a two and a half day course we aim to provide guidance in this relatively new ‘arena’ of radiology. The traditional role of the radiologist is changing from a relatively passive to a more active role in patient care. This is even truer in the field of sports radiology. We cannot stay passive behind our workstations any more but have to be closely involved in all aspects concerning the injured athlete.
Since patients are becoming more demanding and since shared decision making already is mainstay in elite sports management, the radiologist who is dealing with an injured athlete needs to be part of the medical team and needs to feel responsible for this position. Musculoskeletal radiologists should be key players and should be in the frontline. Close interaction between the different disciplines that are involved in dealing with injured sports people is mandatory and can only be beneficial for the patient.
Why might you consider participating?
