Musculoskeletal Radiology performs the full range of musculoskeletal imaging using a variety of modalities, including general radiography, CT, MRI, and arthrography. Radiologists in this subspecialty also assist in the interpretation of musculoskeletal radionuclide bone scans, read in conjunction with a nuclear medicine physician.
The department's outpatient musculoskeletal radiology facility is at the Peter Morton Medical Building (200 UCLA Medical Plaza), adjacent to the Orthopaedic and Osteoporosis Center. The Musculoskeletal reading room is located in the Orthopaedic Clinic, and our faculty are available for consultations during their clinic hours. Our faculty and technologists have a very close working relationship with the Department of Orthopaedics, and conduct joint conferences and research endeavors with their Department.
