Musculoskeletal radiology

We provide this service at the following locations:

Musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging in Radiology Center Munich answers questions about the active and passive musculoskeletal system. Depending on your individual problem, we use the relevant X-ray  / CT / MRI and nucleare medicine based approach.

MSK imaging is a long-established speciality at RZM, and several of our colleagues are certified as instructors or experts of the DGMSR (German Society for Musculoskeletal Radiology). They make active national and international contributions to clinical-academic training and education. MSK diagnostics is closely integrated into the specialist disciplines (e.g. orthopeadics, physical therapy, rheumatology) involved and takes place in close coordination with our referring colleagues.
