Musculoskeletal Imaging
Musculoskeletal Imaging

Orthopedic care depends on good quality images of the bones and soft tissues. Our world-class imaging team provides care for both you as well as your favorite Miami professional sports team.

From the professional athlete to the weekend warrior and the occasional couch potato.
Musculoskeletal radiology is the subspecialty of radiology that is devoted to the study and diagnosis of diseases related to the bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Musculoskeletal specialists are specially trained radiologists who have thorough knowledge of the detailed anatomy of the musculoskeletal system. We are also able to integrate information from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), radiography, sonography (ultrasound) and other imaging methods to solve challenging diagnostic problems whether related to trauma, tumors, or rheumatologic disease. Our imaging techniques are constantly refined and updated to provide the greatest diagnostic accuracy.

Radiology Associates of South Florida musculoskeletal radiologists have a long history of dedicated academic and clinical expertise in this subspecialty:

  • Fellowship-trained, experienced musculoskeletal radiologists who accurately interpret all musculoskeletal radiologic studies.
  • Years of experience in performing arthrograms and joint injections under imaging guidance and interpreting MR and CT arthrograms.

Interesting Cases

Arthrograms /Joint injections/Interventional procedures
Our team is adept at the performance of CT and MR arthrograms, in which CT or MR images of a joint are obtained after a contrast agent is injected directly into the joint space under imaging guidance. We have refined the procedure to maximize patient comfort and to obtain images for demonstration of subtle abnormalities. Additionally we provide:

  • Extremity joint injections for pain management
  • Joint aspirations
  • Ultrasound-guided cyst aspiration, and removal of bursal and tendon calcium deposits
  • Sacroiliac joint injections
  • One of our musculoskeletal radiologists, Dr. Juan Carlos Batlle, as well as our interventionalist at Doctors Hospital, Dr. Thomas Scagnelli, also provide facet joint injections, epidural injections and selective nerve root injections for pain management.
