Imaging Solutions for Sports Medicine

MRI and Ultrasound imaging solutions for sports medicine play an important role in the overall evaluation of the athlete regarding identification of the risk of re-injury and cardio performance evaluation and monitoring.


Sport is a widespread activity among increasingly wider population and age groups. It represents an element of personal fulfillment, sociability, psychophysical well-being and also an important factor in medical prevention. However, practicing sports is inevitably linked to the risk of injuries.

6.2 million people

require hospital treatment for sports injuries every year in Europe

42% of all sports injuries

treated in hospital are team ball sports related

ankle, knee, shoulder

are the most frequently injured body part

The diagnostic aspect is important not only to correctly plan the treatment path after an injury has occurred, but also before starting physical activity, to promptly identify or prevent cardiac and musculoskeletal problems.

For patients, it is about facing without worries a sport or the recovery process from an injury, which can sometimes be very long. Doctors, on the other hand, are called upon to deal with a large quantity and variety of cases (different parts of the body, different characteristics and ages of patients), to conduct examinations in various places and in some cases with patients on the move, and finally, sometimes, to examine patients with metal prostheses.

Esaote's advanced solutions guarantee clear and precise information, minimizing the risk of heart failure for all patients, especially children, during intensive sports sessions. Thanks to the quality of Esaote devices, patients can prevent severe injuries by identifying micro-lesions and, in the event of an injury, recover full efficiency to return to sports practice in optimal conditions.

For their part, sports medicine doctors benefit from MRI machines that can be installed in small spaces with an open system, with low noise and great accessibility for all patients. Furthermore, Esaote's ability to design high-frequency probes, combined with the clarity of the follow-up of inflammation and musculoskeletal trauma and a dedicated visit management computer system, helps health professionals make the most correct decisions and provide accurate and complete diagnoses in all settings and to all patients.
