  • ObjectivesMagnetic resonance (MR) imaging and ultrasound have become valuable tools for evaluation of traumatic muscle injuries in athletes. Common athletic injuries include strain, contusion and avulsion, which are characterised by muscle fibre disruption, intramuscular haemorrhagic dissection, haematoma at the musculotendinous junction, and perifascial blood or haematoma.MethodsMR imaging may allow clinicians to predict the time required before athletes can return to competition and the risk… CONTINUE READING
