Sports Imaging Image

We have a “deep bench” of expertise in musculoskeletal imaging, which is integral for pain management, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related injuries. Individuals benefit from the same level of professionalism and quality we extend to many professional, amateur, and collegiate teams.

Some Sports Imaging Procedures Include:

Arthrogram

An arthrogram is an X-ray exam of a joint, using a contrast agent and fluoroscopy (a live motion X-Ray). It is used to diagnose the cause of pain or restricted motion of a joint as well as injury to the components of the joint including, the tendons, soft tissues, ligaments, labrum, cartilage and bones. Often this procedure is used to image the shoulder and hip joints, and it is also used when investigating the knees, elbows, ankles and wrists. CT and MRI may also be used to gain additional images of the joint.

Digital X-Ray

X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. It is also the fastest, and easiest and most economical way for a physician to view and assess broken bones.

During the procedure, electromagnetic radiation passes through the body onto “film” (now digitized and displayed on a computer screen). Dense structures such as bone absorb most of the radiation and appear white on the digital image. Structures that are less dense like air appear black. Everything in between appears a different shade of gray.
