Muscoskeletal radiology is a procedure that involves the imaging of bone and joint abnormalities which include trauma and orthopaedic and rheumatlogic conditions.
Consultants in this area particularly specialise in how human bones, muscles and joints work together. They use imaging techniques to diagnose a patient’s condition in a non-invasive manner.
Musculoskeletal conditions can be the result of various injuries from work incidents and sports injuries to lifestyle choices. Common conditions examined and diagnosed include arthritis of the knee and other joints and osteoporosis of the bones. Musculoskeletal radiology assists in leading patients to the most efficient recovery process possible providing them with imaging and treatment procedures for the conditions they have.
