We endeavor to provide a fellowship training experience that is fun, stimulating, and well-rounded. When you leave Colorado (if you leave!) you will have had training in all aspects of MSK imaging: Radiography, CT, MRI, focused MSK Ultrasound, and all manner of MSK interventional procedures. We are striving to build our procedural service to encompass the expertise of our staff. This includes arthrography, therapeutic and diagnostic joint injection, spinal injection to include cervical, thoracic and lumbar epidurals, selective nerve root blocks and facet injections, discography, bone and soft tissue biopsy, vertbroplasty and kyphoplasty, and RF and cryoablation of primary and metastatic bone tumors.
We work closely with the Departments of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Rehabilitation. We have a firm philosophy to add maximum value to our interpretation and intervention and to facilitate this we have two embedded reading rooms: one located on the main campus centered between the Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, and Spine Clinics and the other embedded within the CU Sports Medicine Clinic at the site of our dedicated sports imaging center. Clinical conferences are a must to effectively train in MSK radiology and we offer our imaging expertise at regularly scheduled multi-disciplinary conferences.
With our diverse exposure to all facets of MSK radiology, research projects are abundant. We can encourage you and facilitate your own project or you can participate in ongoing research. Our faculty has research interests in hip imaging, spine intervention, knee injury, MSK ultrasound and spine imaging.
The MSK Fellowship program will accept applications for 2015-2016 from 7/1/13 - 8/31/13.
