Musculoskeletal Radiology (VGH)

Sites: Vancouver General Hospital & UBC Hospital

The Department accepts two funded fellows per year to the musculoskeletal radiology fellowship program. Fellows are an integral part of the musculoskeletal services which performs a wide variety of examinations including radiography, CT, MRI, bone mineral density and interventional procedures. An ultrasound program has been developed by Dr. Luck Louis. As the Vancouver General Hospital is the primary site for the management of musculoskeletal oncology, we have a strong relationship with the sarcoma program at the British Columbia Cancer Agency, and participate in the program each week.

Most patients are biopsied at the Vancouver General, and most staging imaging is also done here. A large reconstructive joint program is also based here, providing an opportunity for evaluation of prostheses as well as aspiration and injection of joints. An opportunity for research and publication is also provided. During most years, one or two additional fellows are sponsored by foreign governments or organizations allowing for increased opportunities for study and research.  (Interventional procedures include imaging-guided bone biopsy, joint aspiration injection, radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, vertebroplasty and cemetoplasty.)For more information regarding this program please visit
