Whimsical Sports Medicine

MRI Body Array

In sports-related muscle injuries, the main goal of the sports medicine physician is to return the athlete to competition—balanced against the need to prevent the injury from worsening or recurring.


A prognosis based on the available clinical and imaging information is crucial to confirm and assess the extent of sports-related muscle injuries and may help to guide management, which directly affects the prognosis.


This is especially important when the diagnosis or grade of injury is unclear when recovery is taking longer than expected, and when interventional or surgical management may be necessary

Diagnose complex joint motion-related sports injuries in real time with a versatile MRI body array

Real-time dynamic image quality

  • Flexible MR coil enables contours to the athlete to maximize SNR enabling dynamic imaging capturing real-time movements and functions of joints and muscles

Advanced Acceleration for Fast Assessments

  • Dense coil spacing and 12-channel two-pad design promote parallel imaging for improved acceleration to help accurately diagnose a range of athlete sports-related injuries.

Versatile non-invasive clinical functionality

  • Quickly diagnose sports medicine injuries, from muscle, ligament, tendon, cartilage damage, and meniscus injuries to bone or stress fractures.


Predict athlete post-injury management

Easily monitor and tailor rehabilitation programs to access and accelerate an athlete's return to peak performance.

Diagnose a range of sports-related athlete injuries

  • Torn Ligaments: Injuries to ligaments, such as ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) or MCL (medial collateral ligament) 

  • Muscle Tears: Detect tears in muscles, such as hamstring or calf muscle injuries

  • Tendinitis and Tendon Tears: Conditions like Achilles tendinitis or shoulder rotator cuff tears 

  • Stress Fractures: Early-stage bone stress factors

  • Meniscus Tears: Injuries or tears to the meniscus

  • Muscle Hernias:

  • Cartilage Damage: Damage to the knee or shoulder joint cartilage  

  • Spinal Injuries: Diagnose herniated discs or other spinal injuries  

  • Bone Bruises: which cannot be captured on x-rays and are often associated with ligament injuries

  • Joint Injuries: Damage to joints, including dislocations or labral tears in the shoulder or hip.

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Hand and wrist sprains and fractures

  • Acute and chronic muscle strains

  • Groin (non-hip joint) pain

Cancer and cardiovascular conditions 


Detect and monitor the progression of cancer and cardiovascular conditions such as congestive heart failure.

Compatible with Siemens Healthineers and GE Healthcare MRI systems
