Establishing Non-invasive Diagnostic Criteria for Tissue Pathology in Tendinopathy

Tendinopathy remains a common and debilitating condition in human and veterinary medicine alike. When identified early in the spectrum of disease, tendon damage is reversible and severe injury may be prevented.

Her work will develop non-invasive diagnostic criteria for tissue pathology in tendinopathy, which could be relevant both in horse and human tendon disease.
