PPA offers a full range of musculoskeletal imaging and interventional procedures, performed by musculoskeletal imaging fellowship trained radiologists.
We have state of the art plain films, fluoroscopy, CT, and MRI equipment to perform specialized musculoskeletal imaging. This includes Metal Artifact Reduction Sequence (MARS) CT for imaging of metallic prostheses. We have a wide bore 1.5 T MR 450W to accomodate claustrophobic patients.
We also offer a full array of musculoskeletal ultrasound for specialized musculoskeletal application such as dynamic imaging of tendons and joints. Commonly performed procedures include shoulder ultrasound for rotator cuff tears, and dynamic hand and wrist imaging.
Intervention procedures include image guided arthrograms as well as therapeutic joint injections and cyst aspirations. Our radiologists will work with the referring physician to tailor the imaging guidance modality to provide the best patient experience. Fluoroscopy, ultrasound, and CT are all used as needed.
