Sports Medicine, Musculoskeletal, and Orthopedic Imaging
Jefferson Radiology sub-specialty trained physicians are trained to diagnose and treat not only athletic injuries, but also a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders. Our radiologists offer a full spectrum of diagnostic services specializing in disorders of the bones, joints, and soft tissues. Our state-of-the-art imaging facilities include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), multi-slice CT, and nuclear scintigraphy, which allows Jefferson Radiology the ability to use the highest quality techniques available to ensure the most accurate possible diagnoses. When imaging studies remain inconclusive, we offer minimally invasive needle biopsies under image guidance by ultrasound, fluoroscopy, or CT. We also offer image-guided procedures and spinal injections to treat general orthopedic conditions and trauma.
Patients are able to have great confidence in their treatment knowing that Jefferson Radiology uses the highest quality imaging techniques available, and maintains continuous hardware and software improvements enabling us to do exams faster and with more convenience to patients. Jefferson Radiology combines this technology with our experienced specialists who have performed these procedures thousands of times to perfect subtle techniques allowing patients to receive the best experience possible. One such example of our combination of technology and experience are small modifications to the method of injecting a local anesthetic to allow hip injections, which makes the overall injection much less unpleasant.
Our compassionate staff members maintain close relationships in collaboration with referring physicians. This includes a consultation before procedures and exams and even extends to follow-up in a post-treatment care plan. Our physicians work with orthopedic surgeons to help plan surgeries, rheumatologists to work on diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and oncologists for precise visualization of tumors.
All of our musculoskeletal imaging specialists have completed a one or two-year fellowship program after their diagnostic radiology residency.
