MSK Fellowship Match – We’re in!

Our fellowship program will be participating in the Match to be held in 2019. We will begin accepting applications after October 1, 2018. This website will be updated with more information regarding the application form and interview timeline as we learn more from the SSR.

Fellowship Application

Thank you to all who applied to the 2019-2020 Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Fellowship. We are no longer accepting applications.

The Department of Radiology Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Section provides image interpretation and imaging-guided intervention of the extremities and spine. The section is composed of internationally known experts with expertise in all modalities used to image, treat, and diagnose pain in the musculoskeletal system. The section also provides expert consultation for spine, joint, and extremity imaging including complex sports medicine imaging.

Our five fellows are fully integrated into the section and work closely with the faculty in interpreting radiographs, CT, MR, and ultrasound scans of the extremities and spine, as well as performing biopsies, vertebroplasties, image-guided ablations, and diagnostic and therapeutic joint and spine injections. Last year we performed 800 extremity ultrasound examinations, 750 ultrasound guided injections, 1,950 fluoroscopy and CT guided injection and interventional procedures, 1900 CT and 10,500 MR examinations of the extremities and the spine including 500 MR arthrograms.

Fellows are appointed to the faculty as clinical instructors. Fellows receive faculty benefits including 22 days vacation and a book and travel fund. Academic time is given to support research.

Goal: Determine if clinical intervention at time of kyphoplasty helps compliance with evaluation of bone mineral density and with treatment. This is retrospective evaluation of kyphoplasty patients to determine if having personnel dedicated aids in follow up evaluation of bone mineral density with Dexa and compliance with treatment.
