Our team of musculoskeletal radiologists at the Johns Hopkins Musculoskeletal Radiology Section work very closely with other specialists, including orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, neurosurgeons, rheumatologists and oncologists, to provide a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients.

Patient Care: Subspecialty Centers of Excellence

In addition to being recognized for excellence in routine evaluation of patients with common sports injuries, the Musculoskeletal Radiology Section is also recognized nationally and internationally for specialized diagnostic imaging studies and interventional procedures.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • High-resolution imaging of joint injuries, including:
    • Shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists and hands
    • Dynamic and weight-bearing evaluations of the joints of the upper and lower extremities
    • Imaging of patients with arthritis
  • High-resolution assessment of the peripheral nervous system and patients with chronic pain
  • Imaging of joint replacements, with specialized metal reduction techniques
  • Imaging of bone and soft tissue tumors
  • Imaging of muscle disorders
  • Whole-body MRI
  • Evaluation of musculoskeletal diseases with novel MRI techniques, including functional and metabolic techniques

Interventional Procedures

We perform image-guided joint aspirations, biopsies and therapeutic procedures. When deemed necessary, we utilize MRI to take advantage of advanced imaging techniques to target disease processes. Our procedures include:

  • Image-guided joint injections and aspirations
  • Image-guided biopsies
  • Peripheral nerve pain management
  • Specialized magnetic resonance-guided interventions and therapies

Education

Our division offers a 12-month dedicated musculoskeletal imaging fellowship, which provides superior clinical training in CT, ultrasound and MRI, and in the performance of musculoskeletal interventions. We also offer a research fellowship in musculoskeletal radiology for scientists, physicians or medical trainees to study the applications of musculoskeletal imaging.

Research

Research pursuits in the Johns Hopkins Musculoskeletal Radiology Section occur through the Subspecialty Centers of Excellence. Our musculoskeletal imaging researchers develop novel imaging techniques and treatments for a variety of musculoskeletal diseases and conditions. Examples of research interests include:

  • High-resolution joint imaging
  • Arthritis and dynamic joint imaging
  • Peripheral nerve disorders in the brachial plexus and extremities
  • Tumor functional and metabolic imaging
  • Interventional MRI applications
  • Muscle disorders
