We held our second Medical Imaging Sport event in partnership with Manchester United Football Club in November 2019
Manchester United Football Club’s Old Trafford stadium recently played host to an event dedicated to the world of sports medicine. The occasion, hosted by Canon Medical Systems UK, drew together clinicians, researchers and industry experts to discuss how medical imaging can assist elite sports and the wider public with injury prevention, earlier diagnosis and faster rehabilitation.
Best practice and clinical research speakers included Dr Steve McNally, Head of Football Medicine & Science at Manchester United Football Club, Dr Guido Pieles, Consultant Congenital Cardiologist at Bristol Heart Institute and University of Bristol and Dr Gil Rodas, Team Doctor & Medical Director Barca Innovation Hub from FC Barcelona.
Sporting partnerships giving greater insight into the anatomical and physiological understanding of the human body to prevent, diagnose and recover from illness and injury.
