Our Department of Radiology is a premier state-of-the-art facility performing more than 400,000 radiological exams in 2017. Currently, a total of 13 CTs (including multiple DECT’s), 4 1.5T MRIs, 4 3T MRI’s, 1 PET/CT, and multiple interventional suites provide level 1 trauma and comprehensive tertiary care and imaging. Our team works closely with numerous other departments and sections throughout the UF Health system, in particular: Orthopedic Surgery, Non-operative Sports Medicine, Rheumatology, Emergency Medicine, Infectious Disease and Pediatrics. As a level 1 trauma center near a major university and referral center for Orthopedic Oncology, our fellowship trainees receive superb exposure to a broad range of pathology and imaging-guided procedures. Our subspecialty practice is housed in the UF Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute, a free standing outpatient center, providing opportunity for direct interaction with our referring specialists.
The Musculoskeletal Imaging Section at UF currently has four faculty physicians covering the service and performs a broad range of diagnostic imaging studies and musculoskeletal interventional procedures. Independent responsibilities for fellows include radiograph interpretation and after hours resident supervision, but there is additional compensation for these duties. There are also opportunities for internal moonlighting to maintain general radiology skills. Involvement in clinical research is encouraged.
