A company specializing in medical ultrasound imaging equipment has announced that two major sports medicine organizations have adopted their new ultrasound system to optimize rehabilitation for athletes with musculoskeletal injuries.

When a professional athlete is injured, rapid recovery is critical to enable them to return to their sport. To facilitate this, sports medicine practitioners can make use of the new ultrasound system to quantify muscle and tendon tissue loading before and after an injury, and control the recovery process. The tool provides objective data to help clinicians prevent injuries, and facilitate rehabilitation, and recovery for athletes.

The SuperSonic Imagine (Aix-en-Provence, France) Aixplorer ultrasound system with real-time ShearWave Elastography (SWE) was adopted by the Portuguese Lisboa Benfica (Lisbon, Portugal) soccer team, and the Pure Sport Medicine (London, UK) organization.

The Aixplorer also uses the new Angio PL.U.S. (PLanewave UltraSensitive imaging) imaging mode that improves color Doppler sensitivity, and the spatial resolution of a scan. The new technique also enables sports medicine practitioners to identify low-grade tendon or muscle inflammation.

Jacques Souquet, SuperSonic CIO and founder, said, “Sports doctors need to be able to continuously monitor athletes’ injuries from initial diagnosis through to recovery. If players return to workouts too quickly, the injuries could become more serious and permanent. Having the most advanced tools at hand is key for enabling clinicians to know when it is time to change the course of treatment and when it is safe for athletes to return to their active careers. We are proud to provide such tools for athletic organizations across Europe.”
