This fellowship is geared toward the individual desiring flexible advanced training in Musculoskeletal Imaging. The participant can custom-tailor a self-directed program to include observation of MRI, CT, and radiography readout, as well as interventional bone and joint procedures. This fellowship program incorporates advanced imaging of shoulder, knee, foot and ankle, hip, wrist, elbow, and professional sports medicine imaging. Approximately 30-40 MR arthrograms (direct and indirect) are reviewed each week. Procedures include biopsies of bone and soft tissue, arthrograms, nerve blocks, disc aspiration and discography. An extensive digital teaching file is available for review. Personal consultation on individual cases and protocol selection is available.

The Visiting Fellowship programs managed through the department of radiology are designed to provide a flexible and individualized learning experience. Although there is no direct patient contact, visiting fellows have the opportunity to participate in film interpretation, observe procedures and techniques as well as attend regularly scheduled case reviews and interdisciplinary conferences.
