Radiology Department in 2012 Olympics
Radiology has now a central role to play in sports medicine, and you cannot imagine event like olympics to be without proper radiology facilities. These facilities are enough to support a moderate size hospital. The radiology department in London Olympics had GE imaging equipment consisting of two MRI’s: a Discovery MR750w wide-bore 3-tesla system, and an Optima MR450w wide-bore 1.5-tesla unit. There’s also a Discovery 750HD CT scanner, a Discovery XR656 wireless digital X-ray system and Venue 40 and Logiq E9 ultrasound systems. 50% of the studies done were MRIs, obviously for its imaging capability in MSK. The medical staff were all volunteers.
