Musculoskeletal Imaging


The Musculoskeletal Imaging subdivision provides comprehensive diagnostic and image-guided interventional procedures of the musculoskeletal system. Modalities included conventional and digital radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Conventional, CT, and MR arthrography are routinely performed by the division’s subspecialized radiologists.

Image-guided biopsies and therapeutic procedures of bones and soft tissues constitute a portion of the daily workload and specialty training. Where appropriate, both minimally invasive fine needle aspiration and core biopsy techniques are utilized. The University of Rochester is also one of few national centers that routinely performs percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of osteoid osteomas as an alternative to surgery.
