Musculoskeletal MRI in Football Medicine - essential, useful or too much information?
In the higher echelons of professional football, where financial resources are greater, the use of MRI as a diagnostic aid has been prevalent for the past 20 years. However, it has not always been employed as part of a validated clinical process with scans being requested sometimes for political reasons or simply in response to player/coach demand. The potential ramifications of MRI findings can go far beyond clinical management and affect transfer fees, player asset value, contract terms and conditions, insurability and medicolegal matters.
