Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Mount Sinai Hospital offers a one-year fellowship in Muscoloskeletal Radiology. The goal of the Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship program is to prepare the next generation of musculoskeletal imaging radiologists by providing training with the latest computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) equipment and with exposure to a variety of musculoskeletal interventions including, CT, fluoroscopic, and ultrasound guided procedures.  In addition, the fellowship affords the opportunity to participate in clinical research which is strongly encouraged as a component of the Mount Sinai Department of Radiology. All the Radiology faculty at Mount Sinai are committed to the education of our fellows.

Our Musculoskeletal Imaging Fellowship participates in the NRMP Match.

The fellow trains in all major aspects of Musculoskeletal Radiology and will get exposure to all modalities and dictate cases throughout thier fellowship (MRI, CT, US, interventional radiology, and radiographs) in addition to gaining comfort with performing multiple procedures to routine and complex orthopedic pathologies.  Responsibility and independence incrementally increased as appropriate for thier demonstrated level of ability as the year progresses.  The fellow gains experience through cases interpretation on a daily basis and through a weekly dedicated radiology conference, as well as daily resident and fellow one-on-one teaching sessions.


The fellow dictates daily cross-sectional cases and review them with assigned staff members.  The fellow is responsible for protocolling scheduled cases tailoring the examination to answer specific clinical questions, providing consultation services for clinicians , and teaching residents and medical students along with attending staff. Cross-sectional cases involve all standardized joint imaging, as well as specialized imaging, including but not limited to joint arthroplasty imaging, sternoclavicular joints, pectoralis tears and athletic pubalgia cases and dual energy CT studies. 


The Ultrasound exposure provides the musculoskeletal radiology fellow with the foundation to perform common diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations.


CT, ultrasound and fluoro-guided interventional services are provided five days a week which includes variety of interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in the musculoskeletal system.  The fellow is responsible for preparing for and performing interventional procedures in conjenction with assigned attending. Pre-procedure imaging studies are reviewed with the attending and appropriate technique and approach is discussed and chosen. Procedures performed include arthrography, percutaneous biopsies for osseous and soft-tissue lesions, scleroteraphy for cystic lesions, aspiration for suspected infection and therapeutic injections.


The fellow will have the opportnuity to dicate and review radiolographs and obtain a strong foundation in the basic musculoskeletal imaging examination.
