Recreational and competitive running is increasing in popularity worldwide and in all age groups, and running injuries are becoming more prevalent.  Symptoms and clinical exam can be nonspecific and suggest a wide differential diagnosis.    Imaging, especially MR, can help diagnose injury, determine the location, severity and extent of injury thereby providing prognostic information, exclude diagnoses, and help direct the type and timing of treatment, making it invaluable in the workup of the injured athlete.   This session will help familiarize the participant of the common lower extremity injuries, relevant anatomy and pathogenesis of injury in track and field athletes and the MR imaging findings seen in these patients.
