3T MRI shows correlation between sports and knee abnormalities

December 2, 2009

Some researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, have conducted a study with 236 asymptomatic patients to investigate the relationship between sports and knee abnormalities. Even, when further research is needed, the study shows a correlation between sports with high impact on the knees (running, jumping, skying) and cartilage deterioration. Of course, this is not a surprising discovery, but it shows clinical evidence of the effect of some sports on the human body: a warning for extreme sporters?
