A New Look At Ulnar Collateral Ligament "Tommy John" Elbow Injuries

My partner at Washington University Matthew Smith MD an elbow ligament and throwing injury expert and Spencer Lake PhD a Washington University Mechanical Engineer have received a grant to look at innovative ways to image the ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow utilizing polarized light. This should give us more information regarding structural properties and how better to treat these injuries. This work featured in the St. Louis Post Dispatch article from the Business Section HERE is truly exciting given the number of these injuries that are occurring in younger and younger athletes.
