Musculoskeletal Radiology

Arthrography and diagnostic/therapeutic joint injection/aspiration – Arthrography can be combined with CT or MRI. For suspected joint infection, aspiration can be performed. For painful joints anesthetic and steroid can be injected. This technique can also be used if it is unclear whether pain is from the joint.

Advanced sports imaging – Including MR arthrography and 3 Tesla high field scanners.

Multidetector CT (MDCT) – MDCT is excellent for visualization of bones and soft tissues.

CT arthrography – This is especially useful when there is metal in the region which Services Offered

CT arthrography – This is especially useful when there is metal in the region which limits effectiveness of MRI, or when the patient has a contraindication for MRI

Soft tissue biopsy – We have extensive experience in performing safe, pain-free biopsy of bone and soft tissue lesions and suspected infection. We utilize imaging guidance to accurately localize the biopsy site and avoiding potential complications, while minimizing patient discomfort.
