Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging
The Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging provides state-of-the art care for patients who are presenting with bone, joint and soft tissue conditions. Our board certified, fellowship-trained radiologists are experienced in interpreting studies from all modalities, including radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, ultrasound and fluoroscopy. The division offers numerous imaging-guided procedures, such as MRI or CT arthrography, image-guided pain injections, bone biopsies and soft tissue biopsies.
The Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging interacts regularly with a number of clinical services, including orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, endocrinology and the primary care services, and it works closely with dedicated bone pathologists.
Active Research Projects
- Use of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in musculoskeletal disorders, such as soft tissue abscesses in diabetic patients
- Assessment of the efficacy of cone-down, lower lumbosacral spine radiographs
- Benign rib sclerosis mimicking Paget’s disease on chest radiographs
The Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship at Montefiore and our Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an ACGME-accredited, one-year program that provides superior in-depth didactic and hands-on training in all aspects of clinical musculoskeletal and emergency radiology. One new fellow is sponsored each year.
