Manchester City sign up SonoSite ultrasound system to join its backroom team

SonoSite : 08 August, 2008  (Application Story)
The SonoSite MicroMaxx point-of-care ultrasound system has been selected by Manchester City Football Club’s doctor to assess players’ muscle injuries regularly and ensure that they are back on the field as quickly as possible.
“I liked the SonoSite MicroMaxx system because it is compact and portable,” said Dr Mark Whitaker, the club doctor. “It ticked all the boxes, and I thought it would be ideal in an environment like our treatment room. We use it mainly to help modify our rehabilitation programme; the pressure is on to keep the player fit and trained, and the MicroMaxx gives us the confidence to push players on if we can see that there is no significant injury. There is no doubt that Ultrasound imaging has allowed us to play some of our footballers in senior games that we would not have played before. I think the fact that we’re looking at it in a scientific way gives the footballers huge reassurance too.”

Dr Whitaker is actively involved in Manchester PCT’s tier two musculoskeletal service and feels the potential for quick, early diagnosis of community patients using the MicroMaxx will help the service develop and ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate manner.
