Diagnostics in sports injuries

Diagnostic Radiology

Taking part in sport is healthy. But every sportsman, whether a competitive or a recreational athlete, can be injured in training or competition. Sports injuries to the joints and muscles are among the most common clinical problems.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the diagnostic procedure of choice in order to visualize the extent of a sports injury in a few minutes and without pain. Based on the results of the examination, further treatment can be optimally planned.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography technology

Revolutionary extremity CT Imaging with Cone Beam Computed Tomography technology (Verity® Planmed) provides high resolution volumetric (3D) images of the extremities at a particularly low radiation dose.  It is especially well used for hand and foot injuries and for patients that suffer from claustrophobia.
