The musculoskeletal radiology division performs the full range
of musculoskeletal imaging examinations using a variety of
modalities, including general radiography, CT, MRI,
We work closely with other specialists, including orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, oncologists, neurologists and emergency medicine physicians, in order to provide a
coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients.
Our special interests include sports-related injuries,
degenerative spine disease, infection and tumors of the bones
The division also performs myelography,
arthrograms, bone and soft tissue biopsies, and
peripheral nerve imaging.
The division covers both University Hospital of Brooklyn and
Kings County Hospital Center. Our state-of-the-art equipment includes three 1.5 Tesla MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machines,
five multi-slice CT (computed tomography)
machines, digital fluoroscopy units and ultrasonography
We provide our residency program with the most up to date training possible. A high percentage of our residents pursue further subspecialty training in musculoskeletal imaging. In the past five years, our residents have been offered fellowships at the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Cleveland Clinic, Brigham and Women's Hospital, the University of Virginia, the University of Washington and the Hospital for Joint Diseases.
