SPOKANE -- Inland Imaging is helping out with injuries at this year's Hoopfest. They are joining forces with Premera Blue Cross and assisting medical with tents with on-site X-rays all weekend.
As in previous Hoopfest tournaments, players who are injured are directed to one of the first-aid tents located throughout the downtown area. A licensed medical provider will assess the player and will treat the injury.
Frequently, the question will arise, "is it a fracture or a sprain" and to get the answer, the player may be directed to a hospital or clinic for an X-ray. This year, for the first time in any outdoor 3-on-3 tournament, these X-ray services will be available at no cost to Hoopfest participants.
