Athletes Pre-Participation Screening
Pre-participation screening is a key element of any sports medicine programme.
The value of screening is perceived as two-fold.
Firstly, it allows the recognition and appropriate management of significant medical
and musculoskeletal health issues, which may otherwise have a negative impact on
the health of the individual.
Secondly, it provides the opportunity to recognise and manage issues that may negatively
impact upon athletic performance which may otherwise be missed.
Aspetar performs pre-participation screening of Qatar-based and international athletes
through its Athlete Screening Centre and has adopted world leading practices in
its approach to athlete screening.
This includes the use of a broad range of medical investigations followed by a general
medical evaluation, a cardio-vascular evaluation and a musculoskeletal screening.
Performed by experienced Sports Medicine Physicians, in combination with specialised
nursing, scientific and laboratory staff and with state-of-the-art medical facilities,
the Aspetar Pre-Participation Screening Programme provides athletes with the best
start in their sport.
