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.
