Why should you follow this online course?
Groin pain in athletes is a common problem and renowned for being a complex issue. The wide variety of possible injuries in numerous anatomical structures and high prevalence of ‘abnormal findings’ in asymptomatic athletes contribute to the complexity. Heterogeneous taxonomy of groin injuries in athletes adds further to the confusion. Clinical practice is challenging with clinicians using differing groin pain terminology, where even the same term can have multiple interpretations. The need for clear terminology and definitions has been highlighted numerous times. This 90-minute online SonoClass will discuss the (sono)anatomy, technical scanning guidelines and sonopathology of various sub types of groin pain.
