As a dedicated musculoskeletal imaging facility, Hospital for Special Surgery's Department of Radiology & Imaging focuses all research, training, and the development of new techniques on optimizing the ability to image the earliest signs of a musculoskeletal condition, disease progression and/or healing. Many imaging protocols and procedures considered routine at HSS are done rarely, if at all, at other institutions. All imaging examinations are protocoled, performed, and interpreted by Board-Certified attending radiologists. Radiologists at HSS have additional sub-specialty training and expertise in musculoskeletal diseases and conditions. All Faculty members hold academic appointments at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and New York Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH). In addition, many of the Faculty are the recipients of prestigious awards for outstanding research from peer reviewed organizations and have been recognized for their teaching skills from graduating orthopaedic and radiology residency classes.
The entire medical staff of HSS is committed to the clinical, academic, and basic science research required to make diagnostic advances and bring this information to the global medical community.
