Injuries are a common occurrence in the athletic population. Radiographic imaging can be a useful tool in distinguishing between minor and severe injuries, those needing active rehabilitation and those needing immobilization and change in activity. Radiation is a real concern with imaging, especially with younger athletes. Deciding when it is appropriate and needed to order radiographic imaging will help limit radiation exposure, assist in determining diagnosis and best treatment, and help prevent further injury.
