Musculoskeletal imaging focuses on abnormalities of bones and soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons and nerves. The faculty members in the Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging are able to diagnose a spectrum of conditions including:

  • Sports-related injuries
  • Accident-related trauma
  • Arthritis
  • Infection
  • Cancer
  • Congenital conditions
  • Metabolic and endocrine diseases
  • Pre-surgical evaluation

To that end, division faculty members rely on a variety of diagnostic techniques and interventional procedures such as:

  • X-ray radiographyand fluoroscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Bone densitometry to assess for osteoporosis and other sources of bone loss (all members accredited by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry)
  • Image-guided bone and soft-tissue biopsies
  • Arthrography
  • Joint aspirations
  • Corticosteroid and pain injections
  • Ablation procedures

The faculty members of the division actively support cutting-edge research, currently, involving artificial intelligence, trauma imaging and classification, oncology, quality improvement, and imaging of rheumatologic diseases.

They are also heavily involved in education, including a highly successful and long-running fellowship.
