Sports medicine is emerging as an increasingly specialised and stimulating field of medical practice. High quality diagnostic imaging is an essential component of a successful sports medicine practice, as efficient management of a sporting injury can begin only after a correct diagnosis is established. Consequently it is essential that the clinician has an appreciation of imaging standards and is able to pursue appropriate diagnostic pathways. The Atlas of Imaging in Sports Medicine recognises the important role played by plain films which are invariably the initial and, in the vast majority of cases, the only imaging method used. The more sophisticated tests are also discussed, their appropriate usage dependant on an understanding of the basic response of tissue to injury. The Atlas offers the healthcare manager of an injured athlete, whether physiotherapist, general practitioner or sports physician, a valuable reference text, liberally illustrated with high quality images of both common and unusual sporting injuries.
