Understanding Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention

Musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments of the body. The Radiologists do this utilizing diagnostic imaging such as ultrasound, MRI, or X-ray.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) Radiologists are trained to diagnose diseases and abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system. This sub-specialty of radiology requires an extra year of study called Fellowship training on top of a typical 4-year radiology residency. All of our MSK Radiologists are also board certified by the American Board of Radiology. Many MSK Radiologists can also treat certain conditions, including sports-related injuries such as muscle, ligament, and tendon tears, Arthritis, and spinal fractures. Treatments are done using minimally invasive procedures, leading to faster recovery times.

MSK Treatments

Our Musculoskeletal Radiologists perform procedures with the help of technologists who provide the doctor with real time images right in the space the procedure is being done. This is done using either ultrasound or fluoroscopic images .  The MSK Radiologist is then able to see into your body, and  to place the needle and/or guidewire in the exact spot where therapy is needed, without having to make an incision.  That is why it is called minimally invasive, there is no incision requiring stitches, just the insertion of a needle.  Using this minimally invasive technique allows us to perform procedures with a much higher degree of accuracy, with the added benefit of faster recovery times.

We perform procedures such as steroid injections, nerve blocks, tendon interventions, Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) and more advanced forms of regenerative medicine such as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.

My experience with Dr. Couvillon and his team was very positive. I was nervous and apprehensive about my UFE procedure but Dr. Couvillon and his entire team have the medical knowledge and people skills that put my uneasiness to rest quickly. I would recommend this practice to my friends and family. I’m grateful for such a positive medical experience with this facility.

Dr. Couvillon is a genius. He found the reason for my pain and after the procedure, I was 100% better. I can eat again. The tech was thorough and I felt confident in the results. She is the best. I am thankful that I was able to connect with Winchester Radiologists. Courtney, thank you for scheduling me so quickly. Dr. Fox, thank you for your amazing kindness and persistence in scheduling my procedure.

Dr. Jahed is a wonderful physician. I was seen by him for pain in my thumb caused by internal swelling around the connection to the hand. He explained what was causing my pain and the best treatment. He gave me my second injection today, my first one was about 5months ago. When he gives the injection, it is not painful at all. He listens and explains things very well. I recommend Dr. Jahed highly – a wonderful physician.
