Welcome to the Henry Ford Hospital Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship website.

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 in 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, one of the largest and most-respected health care delivery systems in the nation. All ten 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 division interprets in the order of 100,000 radiographs, 6,000 ultrasounds, and 15,000 MR/CT examinations per year. In addition, approximately 2,400 procedures are performed.

The division is extremely strong in musculoskeletal ultrasound. The fellowship includes dedicated teaching of scanning techniques, and when the fellow is on the ultrasound rotation, a dedicated day of supervised scanning of the fellow’s own patients. A large number of interventional procedures are also performed under ultrasound guidance. Ultrasound Images
