Radiology at the Orthopaedic Institute provides musculoskeletal imaging techniques, such as MRI and bone mineral density measurements, as well as image-guided procedures for the treatment of osteoarthritis. In addition, we offer same-day X-ray services for your convenience during your orthopedic appointment.
The close collaboration between orthopedic surgery and diagnostic radiology allows better management and treatment of patients. Our dedicated radiologists and technologists have many years of expertise in the imaging of bones, joints and soft tissues.
Some of the innovative techniques and technologies available at the Orthopaedic Institute include:
While open scanners are helpful for patients with claustrophobia, their image quality is generally worse than that of our 3 Tesla scanner. Poor image quality may limit interpretation of the images.
