Dr Nick Webborn with his SonoSite MicroMaxx.
The portability of SonoSite’s MicroMaxx point-of-care ultrasound system is crucial for Dr Nick Webborn, founder of the Sportswise centre for sport and exercise medicine, providing valuable additional information during assessment and treatment of patients.
Dr Webborn explained: “Sportswise is a multidisciplinary practice specialising in the treatment of sports injuries, from grass roots to elite level. My practice takes me to a wide variety of sporting events, from professional tennis tournaments to amateur swimming championships, as well as running up to five half-day clinics a week at our University of Brighton Campus centre in Eastbourne.
“Ultrasound imaging is a really valuable tool, supplementing physical examination and patient history to provide a more complete diagnosis. I also use ultrasound needle guidance during treatments, improving the accuracy of injection for better patient outcomes.”
