About Dr. Lin

Dr. Ji Lin is a fellowship-trained radiologist specializing in musculoskeletal imaging. Prior to joining the Department of Radiology and Imaging at HSS, where she also completed a fellowship in musculoskeletal radiology, she trained at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai West for her radiology residency. During her years in training she has developed an interest in arthroplasty imaging and is actively involved in research and review of novel imaging techniques to assess for post-arthroplasty complications.

Dr. Lin's research interest is in the development of novel arthroplasty imaging techniques, including assessment of hip, knee, and ankle replacements. Projects she is currently involved in include using ultrasound to assess for knee arthroplasty complications, magnetic resonance neurography to assess for nerve injury following hip arthroplasty, and advanced magnetic resonance 3D multispectral imaging techniques to evaluate complications following ankle arthroplasty.
