The doctor can see you...

Image clarity, patient comfort

Our MRI machine produces images of exceptional clarity – but uses a "short-bore" design that makes it less intimidating to patients. For many exams, in fact, the short length of the tunnel allows the patient's head to be completely outside the magnet.

Easy referral

We work closely with you and your physician to get fast scheduling and thorough follow-up.

We have a special focus on orthopedic and spine imaging. This allows our fellowship trained radiologists to identify potential problems and provide you and your referring physician with the detailed information crucial for an accurate diagnosis.

What's MSK Radiology?

Some radiologists sub-specialize in a particular area.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology is a subspecialty of radiology focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the muscles and the skeleton. 

UCH has built  an entire team focused on musculoskeletal issues such as orthopedic or sports injuries, spine conditions, bone tumors, and related conditions.

In addition to imaging, MSK radiologists perform interventional procedures such as therapeutic and diagnostic joint, spine, and tendon injections.
