Why you want an MSK radiologist from Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology.
Most imaging centers and even many hospitals are staffed by 'general' radiologists. They don't have the same imaging and treatment expertise of fellowship-trained musculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists. The MSK radiologists of Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at Washington University School of Medicine are recognized as national leaders for both diagnosis and treatment of all bone, joint and soft-tissue conditions. In fact, other MSK radiologists are regularly taught imaging and related techniques here. Some even travel to St. Louis to learn firsthand how we treat our patients. Our expertise is actively sought by other physicians throughout the United States. Professional athletes and other elite performers depend on our services. So should you.
