Tessa Sanderson CBE has been re-appointed as Canon Medical Systems UK Business Ambassador. Tessa is a six-time GB Olympian and the first black British woman to win Olympic gold. She will be representing the Canon brand during its role as “Official Imaging Supporter” at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, while also spearheading wider communication of how valuable sports diagnostic imaging is from her personal and professional experience.
“The role of medical imaging in sports and exercise medicine is invaluable today,” states Tessa Sanderson. “The polyclinics, with Canon Medical imaging systems inside, at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be a fantastic opportunity for athletes from around the world to have medical imaging examinations. In some cases, many simply won’t have access to this sort of care in their home countries. This will help with understanding injury, rehabilitation stages and learning more about the impact of sports on their bodies.”
