Musculoskeletal imaging is a subspecialty of diagnostic radiology which involves ordering and interpreting medical images of bones, joints, and associated soft tissues and diagnosing injuries and disease.

Musculoskeletal Imaging Radiologists Use:

  • X-Rays / Plain Radiography
  • Fluoroscopy (a continuous X-ray that creates moving images of the functioning of joints and soft tissue)
  • CT (Computed Tomography) Scans
  • Ultrasound which is used to image the anatomy and function of soft tissue around bones and joints
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Scans
  • Imaging-Guided Pain Management
