The ACGME-accredited Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship Program offered at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit provides its trainees diverse education in all areas of musculoskeletal imaging and intervention, preparing them equally well for either an academic or private-practice career. Three fellows per year are accepted into our one-year program which begins July 1 and ends June 30.

State-of-the-art equipment and exposure to a vast variety of cases and modalities afford an exceptional educational experience at Henry Ford Health System, one of the largest and most-respected health care delivery systems in the nation. All eight of our highly-skilled, dedicated musculoskeletal staff are fellowship-trained offering an array of expertise and diversity of skill sets giving our fellows a well-rounded education.

The Musculoskeletal Radiology Division enjoys a close working relationship with the Department of Orthopedics. We have an extremely strong Sports Medicine Department including operative and non-operative orthopedists giving exposure to an array of sports-related injuries. As radiologists to the Detroit Lions and Detroit Pistons professional sports teams, our fellows are also exposed to sports injuries unique to high-level professional athletes. Our Department of Sports Medicine will be housed in a new state-of-the-art sports center adjacent to our corporate headquarters at One Ford Place in 2019. The building will also house the Detroit Pistons headquarters and practice facilities. We have two orthopedic oncologists on staff as well offering great experience with diagnostic and interventional tumor cases. These are but a few examples of an excellent experience which also includes referrals from orthopedic spine, joint reconstruction, hand, foot, ankle, orthopedic trauma, pediatric orthopedic, sports medicine, and rheumatology services.

  • MR Imaging – We interpret all musculoskeletal MR including the spine with an extensive range of pathology.
  • Ultrasound – Fellows have the opportunity to gain extensive expertise in musculoskeletal ultrasound.
  • CT – CT examinations are primarily trauma, spine imaging, and preoperative joint replacement evaluation.
  • Procedures – We have a large case volume of procedures including arthrograms, ultrasound-guided aspirations and injections, and bone and soft tissue biopsies a large number of which are tumor cases. Almost all procedures are performed by the fellows under staff supervision.

The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital offers a unique experience of advanced training - diverse pathology, high volume, state-of-the-art equipment, and expert instruction. Fellows graduate our program with the extensive hands-on experience necessary to become the leading musculoskeletal radiologists of the future.
