Musculoskeletal Imaging and Interventions

Our busy clinical practice includes staffing at the main medical center, an outpatient orthopedic center with clinics and surgical suites, and community hospitals. Each fellow works daily alongside one of our subspecialty-trained MSK radiologists on all of the clinical services, gaining experience interpreting a large volume of radiographs, CT, MRI and ultrasound. Fellows perform image-guided procedures on average two days a week. The program’s breadth and depth of diagnostic musculoskeletal imaging and procedures is exceptional and features a case mix that includes traumatic, rheumatologic, metabolic, sports, oncologic and spine imaging.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology’s number and variety of interventional procedures is unique and includes vertebral augmentation; percutaneous tumor therapy using radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation and microwave ablation; bone and soft-tissue biopsy; and joint injection and aspiration. In addition, fellows perform spine procedures including facet injection, and central epidural and transforaminal steroid injections. Fellows learn through daily case exposure, independent learning, lectures and instructional hands-on procedural sessions.
