Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship

The Medical College of Wisconsin musculoskeletal radiology fellowship offers training in both diagnostic imaging and image guided procedures. Fellows rotate primarily at a Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) center and Froedtert Hospital, but also provide imaging services to Community Memorial Hospital (CMH), St Joseph’s Hospital and many outpatient imaging centers and clinics.

Fellows read MRI, CT, US and radiography with a focus on MRI, diagnostic biopsies and therapeutic injections. Cases are balanced and include diagnostic imaging and image guided procedures for an academic orthopedic surgery department featuring three orthopedic oncologists, a level 1 trauma center and the team physicians for the Milwaukee Bucks and Milwaukee Brewers. We also provide imaging and image guided procedures for community and academic rheumatologists, sports medicine physicians, plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, podiatrists and general practitioners.

Our section has 11 fellowship trained radiologists and participates in weekly MSK oncology conferences, weekly rheumatology conferences and twice monthly sports medicine conferences. Our streamlined, integrated EPIC EMR/RIS, McKesson PACS and PowerScribe 360 dictation software allows our trainees to efficiently review many cases. We are a General Electric (GE) beta center with state of the art clinical and research scanners as well as an MRI physicist with a particular interest in musculoskeletal imaging. Our graduates have continued their careers in both private practice and academics.
