We appreciate that injury to the musculoskeletal system can have a detrimental affect on quality of life for any sportsperson. Whether you are a high profile sports person or an injured ‘weekend warrior’, we seek to provide a rapid and expert imaging service to investigate your symptoms.

Our Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologists endeavour to provide the quickest and most detailed analysis of imaging investigations of sports injuries. Our GP and Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon colleagues often refer those with sports injuries such as suspected cruciate ligament or meniscal tears of the knee, Achilles tendon injury, rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations, ankle sprains and ligament tears, suspected tennis or golfer’s elbow, and hip impingement.
