Specialties - Musculoskeletal Radiology

Musculoskeletal radiology is a subspecialty of radiology focusing on the diagnosis and characterization of abnormalities of bones and joints including the key supporting soft tissue structures including muscle, tendon, ligaments, and cartilage.

Primary advanced imaging modalities include computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).  Plain radiographs are commonly utilized for assessment of trauma and arthritis involving the bony skeleton.  Nuclear medicine is commonly employed particularly to assess metastatic spread of tumor to the skeleton.  Ultrasound is commonly utilized for selected applications such as assessment for hip dislocation in the neonate and infant.  Dexa scanning is utilized to assess for osteoporosis.

At RIMA, we have five outstanding radiologists specializing  in musculoskeletal imaging.
