Long-distance running is a common cause of Achilles tendinopathy. A fast, reliable, and non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to track the early changes in tendon is of critical importance for effective clinical intervention and evaluation that can prevent the progression of Achilles tendinopathy. This study aims to evaluate UTE-T2* in the detection of changes in the Achilles tendons of amateur marathon runners before and after long-distance running.
