Musculoskeletal radiology is the application of medical imaging using radiation to the study of the anatomy of the musculoskeletal system. It has a number of uses, ranging from a better understanding of human anatomy to the development of diagnostic criteria for evaluating patients with musculoskeletal diseases. Medical schools typically teach a unit on musculoskeletal radiology and students interested in pursuing careers in this field can take additional coursework to learn more and develop additional skills.

One important aspect of this field is the development of a very large library of images of the musculoskeletal system. Images taken of patients of all ages and physical conditions are used to amass a collection of images people can use in medical training and scientific research. Having comparison images available allows people to do things like assessing suspected cases of a disorder against images of patients known to have the disorder, and such images can also be used to develop clear descriptions for rubrics used in evaluating medical imaging studies.

Capitol Imaging Services has a number of radiology musculoskeletal subspecialists that provide accurate diagnoses for musculoskeletal conditions. Our centers will identify these types of imaging exams and assign this type of subspecialist to review the images and issue the radiology report. This is just another important service element provided by Capitol Imaging Services affiliates.

Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the Southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan, such as a CT or MRI, we provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other healthcare providers.

Capitol Imaging Services often lowers out of pocket costs by performing our exams at less expensive rates than area hospitals and medical centers. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. This advantage is enjoyed without people sacrificing quality of care, technology or results.
