The division of musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology in the department of radiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville proudly serves a large regional base, including a 695-bed, Level I trauma center and tertiary care teaching hospital, as well as a 92-bed community hospital.

Patient Care

The division is responsible for the interpretation of a large volume of complex and interesting musculoskeletal cases encompassing trauma, metabolic bone disease, neoplasms, arthritis and sports injuries. Lumbar spine and temporomandibular joint imaging is also within the division's purview. A team of fellowship-trained radiologists use imaging modalities, such as MRI, dual-energy CT, US and conventional radiographs to provide a tailored imaging regimen to diagnose any MSK aliment. In addition to diagnostic imaging, the division regularly performs arthrography and image-guided steroid injections. Precision-guided injections offer maximum pain relief by delivering medication exactly where it is needed.
