The musculoskeletal imaging fellowship is a one-year clinical program for three fellows. The fellows will have the opportunity to work closely under the guidance of four musculoskeletal attendings who are the Radiology Consultants for the Chicago Bears. This one-year program in musculoskeletal imaging includes plain films, arthrography, percutaneous bone biopsy, CT, and MRI. Approximately 60-100 musculoskeletal MRIs and 15-20 CTs are performed daily. Images are interpreted on our GE PACS system at Evanston Hospital from nine clinical 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla MR systems, and eight CT scanners (including a 64-slice volume CT). Additionally, there are 3-6 arthrograms or other musculoskeletal interventional procedures daily.
MSK fellows will see a wide range of pathology with an emphasis on MRI and sports-related injuries. The fellows will also be involved in the care of elite athletes, such as professional football players and college athletes. Opportunities are also available for clinical and basic research in our new 10,000 square foot radiology research facility with 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla whole-body MR systems. The educational opportunities are enhanced by monthly rheumatology conferences.
MSK fellows participate in the general radiology fellow call pool.
