Though recent research into the diagnosis and management of hamstring disorders has resulted in early and accurate recognition of injury, hamstring strain remains the most common form of muscle injury in the active population.

As such, imaging has played a pivotal role in assisting athletes, both elite and recreational, in returning to activity expeditiously.
