The Musculoskeletal Radiology section includes five faculty members who are all members of either the Society of Skeletal Radiology and/or the International Skeletal Society. They are responsible for the performance and interpretation of all examinations related to musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging. The fellowship includes ample experience in all facets of musculoskeletal imaging, including advanced CT (DECT) and MR (PET/MR) applications, as well as MSK ultrasound. The fellowship experience has a particular emphasis on orthopedics with a vast collection of material obtained through the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center and Baltimore VAMC. Extensive referrals, including bone and soft tissue oncology cases from the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center and an active sports medicine practice, provide a wide variety of cases for academic endeavors. We participate in the MSK Fellowship Match program and abide by their guidelines for application submission, interview timing and acceptance notification.
