Musculoskeletal Imaging

Musculoskeletal2Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging

Using the latest in imaging technology, the Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging (MSK) performs a full range of image interpretation and image-guided intervention procedures related to bones and joints. In addition to diagnostic services, the division also specializes in minimally invasive pain management therapies that can often be an effective alternative to surgery.

Imaging Services

Our MSK physicians specialize in bone and joint imaging, spinal imaging, metabolic bone disease, and osteoporosis. Imaging techniques include plain films, CT, Ultrasound, and MRI. For diagnostic purposes, the division also performs plain films, arthrography, bone biopsies, and peripheral soft tissue lesions.

Pain Management

We collaborate with numerous departments within the UVA Health System such as Sports Medicine, Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Neurosurgery, and others. In addition, MSK physicians provide pain management services to patients receiving care through the UVA Spine Clinic. For diagnosing and treating pain originating in the spine, we administer image-guided nerve blocks, epidurals, and joint injections. Consultative services are also provided for complex cases to determine the imaging strategy best suited for each individual situation.

Education: Fellowship Program

For qualified physicians interested in advanced training, the Musculoskeletal Radiology Division seeks candidates for several non-tenured clinical instructor positions. Candidates must have an MD or equivalent, and have successfully completed a diagnostic radiology residency at an ACGME accredited institution. More >>
