Sports and physical activity are very important for your overall wellbeing, but may sometimes lead to injuries. Imaging allows your doctor to see if there are any fractures or damage to underlying tissues so that the injury can be properly treated. In addition, a cardiovascular screen is appropriate for those who want to engage in vigorous physical activity.
What can be done?
MRIs can be used to screen for the likelihood of stroke. Carotid Ultrasound may also be a useful test to image the arteries supplying the brain.
