The Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship at the University of Chicago Medical Center is a one-year non-accredited clinical training program constituting a closely supervised experience in the application and interpretation of imaging examinations and procedures as they relate to the analysis of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, and soft tissues. One position is offered per year. The Musculoskeletal Radiology Section offers state-of-the-art multimodality imaging and image-guided interventional procedures for the patients of the University of Chicago Medical Center. The busy Orthopaedic Oncology Service has long been an example of a team-approach to patient care, and the Musculoskeletal Radiology Section provides comprehensive services as part of the University of Chicago Musculoskeletal Oncology Group, including imaging-guided tumor biopsies and radiofrequency ablation procedures. The radiologists also work closely with the Section of Sports Medicine to offer services to all athletes, as well as the Section of Rheumatology to diagnose complex disorders of joints. The Musculoskeletal Radiology reading rooms are located on the 4th floor of the Duchosoiss Center for Advanced Medicine (“DCAM”). A team of dedicated orthopaedic radiology technologists are located adjacent to the reading rooms, and provide services for the orthopaedic surgery and rheumatology clinics. We also interpret radiographs as well as CT and MRI examinations obtained on the first floor of the DCAM (outpatients) in Mitchell Hospital (inpatients and emergency room patients), and in the Center for Care and Discovery (“CCD” - inpatients). Joint injections and aspirations are generally performed in the fluoroscopy suite in DCAM 1C. Ultrasound examinations, as well as CT-guided biopsies and radiofrequency ablation procedures, are performed in Mitchell Hospital and CCD.
