Well organized by the University of Cape Town in the setting of the Sport Science Institute of South Africa we were able to show the UTC System to a select group of tendon experts from around the globe.

Also many posters had UTC imaging as subject or referred to it.

It became obvious that UTC imaging is widely being used as the imaging modality of first choice and is gradually becoming the golden standard in the management of tendinopathies.

All accepted abstracts are published in a supplement of the South African Journal of Sports Medicine and will be free access.
