Abstract

Groin pain is a frequently encountered symptom in the athlete. The differential diagnosis for an athlete presenting with groin pain is broad and diagnostic imaging plays a crucial role in reaching the correct diagnosis, allowing appropriate therapy to be instituted. In this article we present the radiological differential diagnosis of athletes presenting with groin pain. The common mechanisms of injury, presenting symptoms, and imaging findings for each of these entities are addressed.
