Common Injuries in Mountain Skiing
The most common injuries that occur during the course of winter sports are mainly due to downhill skiing and snowboarding. In recent years it has been observed an increase in the number of accidents due also to a greater number of practitioners, especially snowboarders. Although head and spine injuries are often fatal, they are less common; in fact, most accidents in children and adolescents who practice winter sports involve the lower limbs. The role of the radiologist is essential in recognition of the lesion but also in the treatment planning using all imaging methods at his disposal by conventional radiography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging especially, never forgetting the importance of clinical history and clinical examination.
