Thoracic cage injury imaging in rugby players

R de Villiers

Abstract


Rugby players often sustain high-impact collisions and are therefore at risk of significant traumatic thoracic injuries. Injury to the thoracic cage may be associated with potentially life-threatening sequelae. Player management is often based on the accuracy of the imaging report. The author suggests a combination of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging to optimally evaluate the full spectrum of these potentially serious injuries.
