Most clinicians who manage patients with tendinopathy will have encountered the situation where the clinical picture and imaging findings do not match up.
Sean Docking, researcher at La Trobe Universityâ€™s Sports and Exercise Medicine Research Centre in Melbourne, has been using Ultrasound Tissue Characterisation (UTC) to visualise changes associated with tendinopathy in 3D detail. In this podcast he talks to Liam West about how UTC may help us explain this discrepancy between current imaging and clinical pictures in tendinopathy. He also gives the listener an insight into the clinical relevance of UTC and the lessons that have been learnt from his research within the field.
