Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our one-year fellowship is geared to applicants who are American Board of Radiology certified or eligible. As a fellow, you gain expertise in all facets of orthopedic imaging including radiography, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and imaging-guided procedures.

You receive referrals from the Departments of Rehabilitative Medicine, Rheumatology, and Orthopaedics (including Arthroplasty, Oncology, Pediatrics, Spine, Sports Medicine, and Trauma divisions). We routinely perform advanced imaging techniques such as dual energy CT, cartilage-sensitive MRI, and imaging of metallic prostheses.

We also offer our fellows opportunities to teach, participate in multidisciplinary conferences, and pursue research interests. Clinical investigation is of paramount importance, and we provide dedicated research time and mentorship.

Mount Sinai Radiology uses state-of-the-art, ACR certified equipment including:

  • Twelve high field (1.5T, 3T and 7T) MRI systems including a 1.5T GE Optima extremity scanner

Over the course of the one-year fellowship, fellows hone their skills, learning to interpret a wide variety of musculoskeletal cases, process and interpret advanced imaging cases, and gain comfort in performing a number of diagnostic and therapeutic musculoskeletal procedures. In addition, fellows learn how to present cases clearly and concisely, emphasizing key clinical points, which will prepare them for their careers after graduation.

Fellows additionally gain proficiency in protocoling imaging studies appropriately, tailoring the examination to answer specific clinical questions. Trainees interpret emergency, inpatient and outpatient studies.

Inpatient: exposure to emergency, hospital musculoskeletal imaging (CT/MR/plain films).

Outpatient: exposure to all outpatient musculoskeletal imaging studies (CT/MR, CT 3D reconstructions, DWI and advanced imaging techniques in Musculoskeletal cancer imaging).

Musculoskeletal Procedures: exposure to a variety of interventional procedures (shoulder and hip arthrograms, pain injections, CT and US biopsies).
