There are two major strength centers in the body that are currently associated with injury and reduction of injury: the core strength and the strength of the muscles around the ankle-joint complex.
I presented two papers ('Imaging the Rex recessus vein preoperatively using wedged hepatic venous portography and the role of post-operative doppler ultrasound in Rex shunt surveillance'; and 'Imaging displacement and strain in the medial gastrocnemius muscle during ankle-joint motion using 2D cine DENSE MRI') and a poster ('Effectiveness of percutaneously placed self-expanding metal stents for palliation of malignant biliary obstruction') as part of the scientific sessions, and was generously supported by the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA) towards the journey to Europe.
