The faculty of our Musculoskeletal Radiology section are Board Certified Radiologists with particular interest in musculoskeletal and emergency radiologic diagnosis and procedures. In addition to inpatient services at Vanderbilt University Hospital and The Vanderbilt Clinic, we provide radiologic services for the Vanderbilt Orthopaedic Institute. In addition, we are responsible for providing and coordinating radiologic service for the Emergency Department at Vanderbilt University Hospital, a Level I Trauma Center, with a receiving area including Middle Tennessee, Northern Alabama, and Southern Kentucky. Procedures performed by our section in the hospital setting include arthrograms and joint aspirations, MR arthrograms, bone biopsies and osteoid osteoma ablations.
The research interests of our section include trauma radiology, tumors, arthritis, and the radiographic evaluation of experimental orthopaedic devices. These interests include collaborative projects with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Division of Rheumatology at Vanderbilt.
Members of the section are actively involved in teaching programs at the medical student, resident, and postgraduate levels. We participate in national and international meetings including those sponsored by the Department of Radiology and other professional societies.
