We perform 25 to 55 non-spine musculoskeletal MR examinations per day with a variety of pathology, including sports injuries, trauma, arthropathy and tumors. We routinely perform advanced MR imaging studies, including MR neurography and imaging around metal.  CT exams are performed daily and include weight-bearing cone beam CT and dual-energy CT techniques. We see a high volume of diagnostic MSK ultrasound and routinely perform a variety of ultrasound-guided procedures, including corticosteroid injections, calcific tendinosis lavage, biopsies and aspirations. In addition, we perform a high volume of fluoroscopy-guided and CT-guided procedures. Fellows will become comfortable with and skilled at all aspects of musculoskeletal radiology.

Fellows will benefit from interdisciplinary interactions and formalized conferences in a variety of related clinical areas, including orthopedics/sports medicine, orthopedic oncology, physical and rehabilitation medicine and rheumatology. Fellows are also expected to take active roles in medical student and resident teaching. Opportunities for clinical research are available, and fellows are expected to participate in at least one project that leads either to a presentation at a national radiology meeting or to publication.
