In addition to standard bone radiographs, skeletal radiologic services include arthrography of all joints, CT, ultrasound, and MRI as well as radiologically assisted needle aspiration of skeletal lesions. Bone biopsies are performed with either fine needle or core techniques. Epidural and nerve sheath injections of steroids are available for selected cases. Temporomandibular joint imaging is accomplished by MRI. Multi-detector computed tomography is employed with multi-planar or three-dimensional reconstructions for lesions of peripheral skeleton and spine.
