Musculoskeletal Radiology (VGH)

Site(s): Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) & UBC Hospital (UBCH)

Overview

The Musculoskeletal Radiology program currently accepts 2 funded and 1-2 sponsored or self-funded fellows per year. 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. Interventional procedures include imaging-guided bone biopsy, joint aspiration injection, radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, vertebroplasty, and cemetoplasty.

An ultrasound program has been developed by Dr. Luck Louis which is based at UBC Hospital one day per week.

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. Also, a close working relationship exists with the division of palliative care at the BC Cancer Agency.

Most patients are biopsied at the Vancouver General Hospital, and most staging imaging is also done at VGH. A large reconstructive joint program is also based at Vancouver General Hospital, providing an opportunity for evaluation of prostheses as well as aspiration and injection of joints. An opportunity for research and publication is also provided.
