Other: We offer diverse and broad experience in musculoskeletal imaging and interventions. Our section is responsible for all musculoskeletal imaging, including CT, MR, Ultrasound and Radiography performed at UAB-affiliated hospitals.

The fellows are involved in all aspects of MSK imaging and primarily responsible for performing the MSK procedures. We also have a busy MSK ultrasound service.  Training does include spine imaging and intervention.

As the only Level One Trauma and MSK Oncology referral Center in Alabama, we offer an extensive experience in traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, tumor imaging and intervention as well as sports and rheumatological imaging. Education is a mainstay of our fellowship program with a weekly morning musculoskeletal radiology conference in which faculty, fellows, and residents participate.  

Ours Fellows participate in musculoskeletal backup call (home pager call) along with the entire musculoskeletal faculty. Our fellows also participate in weekend day call, usually one half day every six weeks. There are opportunities for research, electives and internal and external moonlighting in the area.
