Work Scope and Sites:
The fellowship features training in diagnostic radiography, CT, MR, and ultrasound imaging interpretation of bone, joint, soft tissue, and spine pathology. We provide interpretation for all the professional teams in the city of Atlanta including the Falcons, Hawks and the Braves. We also interpret all MRI neurography studies across the system. Training will occur at multiple sites including the Emory Orthopaedic and Spine Center, the Atlanta Hawks Nest at Executive Park, Emory University Hospital Midtown, and Grady Memorial Hospital. We will soon transition to a new state-of-the-art Musculoskeletal Institute at Executive Park.
A significant number of image-guided procedures are performed including arthrograms, FL and US guided joint injections/aspirations, treatment of tendinosis, bursitis and arthritic pain, peripheral nerve blocks, and biopsies of bone and soft tissue neoplasms in addition to osseous spinal neoplasms and infection. In addition, we have a robust clinic that utilizes image-guided cooled RFA and cryoablation for the treatment of pain in the setting of degenerative arthritis of the knee, shoulder and hip.
Fellows will interpret images acquired on various CT units, including a low-dose Cone Beam CT, which allows for weight-bearing studies and several 1.5T and 3T MRI units from various vendors. Fellows will also make use of ultrasound and fluoroscopy units for diagnostic and procedural cases. We use of GE PACS, Sectra PACS, Epic and Powerchart.
Our robust oncologic services include close relationship with multiple sarcoma/oncologic surgeons with strong presence in tumor board case presentations. We also interact regularly with the peripheral nerve group which is comprised of providers from neurology, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, interventional radiology and physical therapy.
