The Stanford Musculoskeletal service is a busy, thriving division in the Department of Radiology, serving Stanford Hospital and Clinics as well as part time coverage at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. An entirely new Stanford hospital is slated to open in November, 2019. Clinical MSK activities are shared between Stanford Hospital, the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center (SMOC) in Redwood City, Stanford Medicine Imaging Center (SMIC), Valley Care and other recently acquired outpatient centers. SMOC, which is the main hub for the MSK Imaging section, possesses eleven diagnostic x-ray rooms, three 3T MRI scanners, two multidetector CT scanners, two radiography and fluoroscopy procedure rooms, and a dedicated MSK ultrasound room. Co-located with orthopedic surgery and other specialists, MSK radiologists practice in this beautifully appointed facility staffed with highly talented and committed staff. Recent enhancements to the clinical service include improved methods for MRI in patients with metallic implants, MR neurography, and special injections of biological agents such as platelet rich plasma. We provide all MSK imaging and image-guided therapeutic procedures to Stanford Athletics as well as to the San Francisco 49ers Football Club and other local professional and collegiate athletic teams.
