Painful -- And Common -- "Golfer's Wrist" is Often a Fracture, MR Imaging Shows

Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)

The cause of wrist pain some golfers experience that is not diagnosed with x-rays may well be due to stress fractures, according to researchers who are finding the tiny breaks with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Their study on the cause of "golfer's wrist" is being presented here today during the 83rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

From Tennis Elbow to Preacher's Knee: The Name's The Thing

Radiological Society of North America (RSNA)

Some injuries are so closely associated with the activities that give rise to them -- from "tennis elbow" to "preacher's knee" and "snowboarder's ankle" -- that their scientific names have been eclipsed by their more common descriptive names, even among medical professionals. Some interesting and unusual eponyms for occupational and sports-related injuries -- and how they are diagnosed -- were presented here today during the 83rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
