Letter from Helene Pavlov, MD, FACR, Radiologist-in-Chief hese are uncertain times for healthcare. The effect of healthcare reform on patient care is still to be determined; however, one thing is clear—healthcare as we know it will change, for both providers and patients. My concerns regarding these changes in the delivery of healthcare are especially heightened due to the precarious position of imaging. Imaging is in the media and political crosshairs for being responsible for the escalating costs of healthcare and for the concerns associated with ionizing radiation. Self-referral by nonradiology physicians who use their own imaging equipment is reported to be responsible for the 200% to 300% increase in CT and MRI utilization. These statistics contribute significantly to reports of overuse of imaging. At HSS, all imaging examinations are performed only by a prescription from referring physicians, and are interpreted by Board Certified Radiologists with subspecialty expertise in musculoskeletal conditions. Radiologists are patient advocates; they provide insight via imaging findings as related to clinical concerns, and do so without bias for finding a reason for surgical intervention. What is ignored in these reports of overuse is the role of imaging in early diagnosis and intervention. Care based on accurate imaging findings can prevent avoidable wasted time and costly financial sequelae. Quality images and expert interpretation that lead to early treatment help reduce the overall costs of healthcare.

T

As to the dangers associated with ionizing radiation, the media focuses on cancer-risk statistics but ignores informing the public of the quality-of-life benefits and value that appropriate imaging provides. The Department of Radiology and Imaging at HSS uses state-of-the-art equipment and employs licensed, certified technologists working under the supervision of Radiologists. We also emphasize the use of radiation hygiene practices to ensure the safety of our patients and our employees. Robert Schneider, MD, Radiology Safety Officer (RSO) and Roseann Zeldin, RT (R),(M), CNMT Associate RSO, establish, oversee and maintain safety standards for all those involved with ionizing radiation, including fluoroscopy, C-arms and CT. You can read about our safety initiatives and some “Tips for Radiation Safety” in this report in the section on Radiation Safety. In this time of national healthcare uncertainty and transition, more than ever the keys to successful imaging are clinical excellence, service, education and research. Department growth from the operational aspect is discussed by Edward White, AVP, and others throughout this report. Coverage includes identifying PACS, registration, equipment, satellite sites, and staff initiatives.

HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging

Richard Fleury, Executive Director of HSS Radiologists, addresses the economic aspect of Department growth. Clinical excellence and service at HSS are a direct function of our Faculty and staff. The quality of the HSS Radiology Faculty is unparalleled. The Chairs of the divisions are individually recognized as premier world-renowned musculoskeletal radiologists. They include Ronald S. Adler, PhD, MD (Ultrasound); Hollis G. Potter, MD (MRI); Gregory R. Saboeiro, MD (CT and IR); and Robert Schneider, MD (Nuclear Medicine). Richard J. Herzog, MD, FACR is locally, nationally and internationally recognized for his expertise in spine imaging. He also provides teleradiology service for multiple imaging sites. Darius Melisaratos, MD, a recent addition to the Department Faculty at HSS, brings Neuroradiology expertise to support and complement the growing HSS Neurology Department. Completing this elite group of radiologists are Eric Bogner, MD; Anthony Chang, MD; Yoshimi Endo, MD; Li Foong Foo, MD; Bernard Ghelman, MD; Theodore T. Miller, MD, FACR; and Carolyn M. Sofka, MD. Many of these globally recognized HSS Radiologists Faculty members are products of the HSS Radiology Fellowship. Making the transition to the HSS Faculty from the Fellowship is not easy. You can experience this transition process through the eyes of Yoshimi Endo, MD, who joined the Faculty in July 2010. Dr. Endo describes his experience in this report. Theodore T. Miller, MD, FACR, who returned to HSS thirteen years after completing his HSS Fellowship, also expresses his feelings and reasons for being back at HSS. Delivery of Radiology services requires Faculty and staff collaboration. I oversee Physician leadership efforts along with Richard Fleury, who works in concert with Ralph Bianco, VP; Edward White, AVP; Christopher Smith, Associate Director and Assistant Directors; Joseph Cuoco, (North Operations); Tai DeNunzio (IT); Mary Giesa, (Registration), Tess Leynes, NP, (IR), Ruth Ann Lindner, (MR); and Robyn Pack, (Clinical Operations). More than 230 skilled employees in the Department work as a team to provide service excellence for our referring Physicians and patients. A few selected Physician and patient statements acknowledging that we are meeting their expectations makes all of our efforts worthwhile. An essential requirement of academic radiology and a major part of the history of the Department of Radiology and Imaging is the Education and Teaching of future radiologists. Robert H. Freiberger, MD, the former Director of the Department, emphasized transferring knowledge and practice expertise to the next


generation of musculoskeletal radiologists. At HSS, he created one of the first Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowships in the nation. Dr. Carolyn M. Sofka, the Department Director of Education and Fellowship Training, has carried this auspicious tradition to new heights. Under her direction, and with the assistance of Amy Lefkovic, Education Coordinator, the number and quality of candidates seeking to learn from our stellar Radiology Faculty is unprecedented. Fellows also have the opportunity to learn from and network with colleagues in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology. This year the Department of Radiology and Imaging has grown to eight Musculoskeletal and MR Fellows. As described in the section on Education, with the guidance of Academic Training our Musculoskeletal Fellowship is now accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. This year, the Fellowship program instituted a mentorship program, which has been successful for both the Fellows and the mentors. In order to better facilitate communication and maximize the Fellowship experience, a Chief Fellow position was created. You can read how Sapna Jain, MD viewed her role and her experiences as the 2010 Chief Fellow in the pages that follow. The Radiology and Imaging educational experience extends beyond education and training of Fellows. Theodore T. Miller, MD, FACR, Director of Resident and Medical Student Training, ensures that the Department provides opportunities for the next generation of medical students who wish to learn about careers in Radiology. Dr. Miller advises NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH Cornell) radiology residents regarding the challenges and rewards of musculoskeletal sub-specialization. The Robert H. Freiberger Academic Center provides our Fellows and Residents computers, hard and softcopy reference material and a quiet space for them to do their work and think. Maribel Maldonado, Academic Technologies Coordinator, and Irene Lajara, Academic Media Assistant, maintain the Academic Center, website, and our online learning materials as well as assist our trainees through this intensive educational experience. This year, a secure, password-protected video library of all our CME Accredited conferences has been added to our enduring educational online offerings in the ‘Staff Only’ section of our website. Essential to the future of imaging is Research. Research provides the tools that unlock the potential of imaging and offer direction for performing optimal healthcare. Under the direction of Hollis G. Potter, MD, Department Director of Research, the Department of Radiology and Imaging is leading imaging research through validated quantitative and qualitative MRI investigations. As described by Dr. Potter in the section on MRI and

Research, the detail and specificity of research using imaging for identifying the early detection of pathology and even preclinical diagnostic accuracy establishes HSS MRI research activities at the leading edge. The goal of these research investigations is to identify intervention opportunities at the optimal time to limit chronic disabling pain and preventable immobility. In addition to the extensive number of MRI research projects, significant clinical investigations utilizing Ultrasound (US), Computerized Tomography (CT), upright CT 3-D Fluoroscopy, and conventional radiography (X-Ray) are also ongoing. All of our research endeavors must pass Department Clinical Research Panel (CRP) scrutiny prior to IRB submission. The CRP panel, chaired by Dr. Potter, is composed of Dr. Herzog, Dr. Miller, and Kristi Leggett, Clinical Research Manager, and Barbara Bosco represents the Clinical Research Department. Published peer-reviewed articles in 2010 are listed at the end of this report. All members of the Department of Radiology and Imaging have a pivotal role in assuring that imaging is performed at the highest quality and meets the expectations of the Board of Trustees, Louis A. Shapiro, FACHE, President and CEO; Thomas P. Sculco, MD, Surgeon-in-Chief; Peggy Crow, MD, Physician-inChief; Steven Goldring, MD, Chief Scientific Officer; and our premier HSS Orthopaedic Surgeons, Rheumatologists and Physicians, and our patients. Teamwork and pride in performance is essential to work at the number one Orthopaedic hospital in the nation. While all the individuals in the Department of Radiology and Imaging deserve special mention and are recognized by their colleagues for consistent “invaluable” performance, we were especially honored by the hospital’s recognition of Jeanne Marie Corvi, Sonographer, and Terry Williams, Image Records Clerk, as Employees of the Month during 2010. On a personal note, Tawana Hayes, my Executive Administrative Coordinator and Assistant, who reads my mind and takes care of my needs before I am aware of them, deserves special recognition. It is truly a privilege to be able to provide top-level imaging services to the physicians and patients of HSS. Each and every individual in the Department contributes daily by showing his or her commitment to the hospital and to the Department. All deserve to be acknowledged for the Department’s growth, accomplishments and success, today and into the future.

Radiation Safety The Department Focuses on Radiation Safety for patients and personnel In 2010, the Department announced a Hospital-wide radiation safety educational initiative to better inform HSS Faculty and staff, and help alleviate radiation concerns of our patients and employees. To assist with this effort, the Associate Radiation Safety Officer Roseann Zeldin, RT, (R), (M), CNMT made direct observations of radiation safety practices of the Radiologists and non-Radiology Physicians and technologists during Fluoroscopic procedures, in addition to during routine X-Ray and CT procedures. These observations were designed to help increase awareness and further the implementation and maintenance of optimal radiation safety hygiene practices in compliance with the Department of Health ALARA levels. Observation, along with further education and new procedures, resulted in significant decreases in monthly and quarterly radiation exposures to staff and further increased physician awareness of safety practices with regards to radiation hygiene.

Bernie Bernstein, RT, and Roseann Zeldin, RT, (R), (M), CNMT, Associate RSO, review appropriate use of lead shielding.

In 2010, more than 200 Faculty and staff were trained and/or retrained in radiation safety procedures.

The following safety initiatives were implemented:

The Basic Education Tips for Radiation Safety

• Lowering radiation factors without sacrificing quality on all C-arms. • Providing lead glasses to staff supporting Fluoroscopy procedures. • Reviewing optimal placement of lead shielding for patients during all types of procedures using ionizing radiation. • Establishing unit-generated warning notifications of increased exposure levels prior to reaching ALARA levels. • “Declaration of Pregnancy” form for monitoring the unborn fetus of radiation workers.

Technologists earn 1 CME credit for participating in the radiation safety program.

Registration he patient experience in the Department of Radiology and Imaging does not begin and end with image acquisition and diagnosis. It starts when the Referring Physician orders an imaging examination and does not end until the Referring Physician, the Radiologist, radiology staff and the patient are each completely satisfied with their service in addition to feeling confident about obtaining accurate interpretations for management recommendations.

T

Everyone in the Department is a part of this beginning-to-end experience. The team works closely with people both within and outside of the Department to help ensure that every part of the process is smooth and simple for all stakeholders. Registration plays an important part in this process. From pre-registration to checking patients in ensuring that billing information is accurate so bills can be processed properly through the insurance companies, Mary Giesa, RT, and her team work diligently to create programs and streamline processes that improve and enhance the Referring Physician and their office staff experience and ensure a positive patient experience.

In 2010, a number of new registration initiatives were undertaken with great results • In 2009, efforts to improve pre-registration began and continued into 2010. Since its inception, pre-registration has improved by 35% in the main division and 10% in the pediatrics division. • New registration desks in the main area of the Department as well as in Interventional Radiology helped decrease patient congestion. • As part of a Radiology Registration initiative with Gallup, the staff is creating a more efficient front registration environment. The staff has rearranged the front desk for a neater appearance with space-saving equipment to create more work space. Magazines and patient chairs have been added to increase patient comfort. • New color-coded signage has made it easier for patients to find their way into and out of the Department.

The Department has increased the efficiency of MD order delivery. Now most orders are coming in via email, which speeds the order process for patient registration, and patient throughput.

Insurance Company Coding Accuracy Streamlines Patient Reimbursement and Increases Department Cash Flow The Balanced Budget Act states that insurance companies can deny any claims without an accurate ICD-9 Diagnosis code. An ICD-9 code initiative was begun in 2010 and requires accurate ICD-9 codes by the ordering physician for every ordered exam. This initiative ensures that: • Patients are reimbursed • There are fewer billing issues and customer service complaints • Service improves • Cash flow increases The new ICD-9 initiative has improved compliance from 50% on capturing accurate ICD-9 codes to 90%. This is well above the industry average.

For patients looking for a peaceful wait without any noise, the department has created a quiet no TV zone in the main waiting room by the river. The registration team is now doing order Quality Assurance (QA) for all Physician orders. The team checks every order for inconsistencies, reviews them for compliance and order entry so that the patient is billed appropriately. The registration team also checks to see if the patient has similar current images so duplicate examinations can be avoided. 2010 Annual Report

Expansion of Ambulatory Satellite Sites

and other staff in improving the way we communicate with our referring physicians and interact with patients. In 2010, the Department began upgrading the system and moving to a web-based PACS solution. The latest iteration provides our team and outside physicians and surgeons with a number of new upgrades that include: • More memory for handling larger stacks and will accommodate additional image detail.

The Department of Radiology and Imaging is expanding into new territories. In 2010, technology was upgraded at the Uniondale Center in Long Island, where a new digital X-Ray unit was installed. Similar upgrades also commenced at a site in Fresh Meadows, Queens. All of these new locations will follow the same quality standards and protocols that help the Department deliver the best in quality patient care. The acquired images will be linked to PACS allowing HSS Radiologists to interpret the images.

• The addition of new reading station hardware.

Upgrades of Department Equipment

• Reading stations to allow Radiologists the ability to review images from their homes (to further improve clinical care).

• In the Caspary building, two X-Ray rooms have been added to service the Hip Preservation Center. This has helped to divide up the patient load leading to enhanced patient throughput. • The OR darkroom was updated with a new CR reader. • In the Belaire building, First Floor Radiology was upgraded to DR and the CR unit was replaced. • The post-anesthesia care unit was upgraded with a portable unit that offers DR acquisition, which has helped to increase the efficiency of obtaining and viewing portable X-Ray images. • Four PACS workstations have been added for the Radiologists in order to enhance Radiologist productivity, report turn-around time for Referring Physicians, improve patient care, and Fellow and resident teaching initiatives.

PACS PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) is constantly evolving and assists our Radiologists, technologists

HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging

• Better image throughput with less bandwidth requirements. • Better internal controls. • Voice recognition tools that are improving report turn-around time.

The Department and the Hospital recognize the value of information technology in providing the best in quality patient care and have committed to building a new Radiology Information System. This new system is needed to further enhance and streamline Department processes, increase patient throughput, overall Referring Physician and patient satisfaction, and provide data mining tools for Quality Assurance (QA), research, etc.

Quality Another Outstanding New York City Department of Health and Office of Radiological Health Inspection In 2010, the Department underwent a New York City Department of Health and Office of Radiological Health Inspection. The QA/QC team under the leadership of Maureen Firth, MS, RT (R) (M) QM, created digital work lists that were available electronically for the inspectors.


The inspector performed a weeklong comprehensive review of our entire program for QA/QC policies, procedures, radiation safety, physicist reports, equipment calibration and ongoing monitoring. At the end of the inspection, the Department received accolades from the NYCDOH for its performance. Regulatory compliance and maintaining our Gold Standard rating is a top priority for the entire team in 2011. Maureen Firth, Mary Giesa, and Ed White deserve the credit for their leadership in helping to maintain and document our quality standards. Keeping Up with Regulatory Compliance and The Joint Commission (TJC) Standards The Department of Radiology and Imaging is proud to announce that it received zero deficiencies in 2010 from The Joint Commission. To ensure continued zero deficiencies on The Joint Commission report, the Department has developed a quality assurance program that conducts daily, weekly and monthly monitoring of various processes to ensure maintenance and compliance with all regulatory bodies, including The Joint Commission. Each month a quality assurance summary is prepared and delivered to the intra-departmental QA committee for review. Each quarter an intra-Departmental QA meeting conducts a retrospective review of the past quarter to discuss all QA regulatory compliance issues. The team works to identify and address any issues or trends that could affect the Department’s excellent standing. More Departmental Changes Lead To Improved Quality Customer order forms were created in an attempt to streamline the process, making it easier for referring physicians to place orders and for the technologists to accurately interpret the request.

Maureen Firth, RT, Mary Giesa, RT, and Ed White, AVP collaborate continuously to ensure TJC compliance.

Equipment Donated The Department of Radiology and Imaging Donates Equipment to a West African Hospital Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei’s founder of the Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS), recently turned to the Department of Radiology and Imaging, requesting equipment donations for a new hospital in Ghana, West Africa. In support of the cause, the Department donated a Multi-Plate Computerized Radiography (CR) Reader to the hospital. We are proud to support Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei in his hard work and dedication to this cause.

In 2010, the Department of Radiology and Imaging added two new Faculty members and twenty-two new staff to the Department.

Radiologist-in-Chief, Dr. Helene Pavlov hosts regular ‘Pow-Wows’ or chats with the staff to discuss the inner workings of the Department. These meetings provide staff with an opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas and produce positive changes for Faculty, staff and patients. 2010 Annual Report

HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging


From Fellow to Assistant Attending Radiologist Yoshimi Endo, MD Having done my Radiology Residency at a program that did not have a Fellowship-trained Musculoskeletal Radiologist until my last two years of training, I found my Fellowship year at Hospital for Special Surgery was rewarding but also daunting at the same time. At the start of my Fellowship in July of 2009, I felt that my lack of exposure to advanced Musculoskeletal Imaging and Musculoskeletal procedures put me at a disadvantage compared with my co-fellows. Everything seemed new to me, including MRI, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, and Interventional Procedures, and there were many instances during the first few weeks of my Fellowship when I felt overwhelmed. It was not very long before I realized the tremendous wealth of resources we had as Fellows. The Department of Radiology and Imaging at HSS had more than one world-renowned expert in every facet of Musculoskeletal Radiology, experts who have been pioneers in their respective niches within the field. Over the next several months, I remained diligent, thinking that I was only going to be at HSS for one year so I should try to learn as much as I can. It was imperative for me to be diligent not only because I felt I had more to learn than my co-Fellows, but also because I was convinced that the resources we had at HSS were unparalleled. I was very surprised when Dr. Pavlov called me into her office in November and asked me about staying on as an Assistant Attending Radiologist after my Fellowship year. To be honest, I could not respond in the affirmative right away because I had my doubts. I had always envisioned myself working at an academic center where I could interact with Residents and Fellows and continue to learn from the more senior Radiologists. I definitely would have had these opportunities at HSS, but I did not think I had what it takes to survive as a Radiologist at HSS. As a fellow, I admired and looked up to every single Radiology Attending at HSS, and it was difficult to imagine myself becoming their colleague; I literally would be a dwarf in the land of the giants. I have to admit that for the next several weeks, I was desperate to see what other jobs were available. I ultimately agreed to stay at HSS after I realized that none of the other jobs in the area were ideal for me. Although it would not be the easiest job, I knew that staying at HSS would allow me to pursue what is most important to me. Once it was established that I would be staying on, for the next six months, I worked harder than ever, trying to absorb as much as I could in order to prepare for

becoming an Attending at HSS. I stayed later than my coFellows, trying to get exposure to as many cases as possible; I tried to ask questions about anything I did not understand, even more so than during the first half of the academic year; I was so desperate about my learning that I ended up forgoing most of my vacation days, thinking that I could not waste any days on vacation (Yes, I realize that was stupid in retrospect). July of 2010 arrived faster than I expected. I was a Fellow one night (I ended up taking the last night of call on June 30) and was an attending the next morning. My co-Fellows were gone, and a new set of bright Fellows had arrived whom I was suddenly expected to take part in training even though I had been in their same shoes only hours earlier. The first months as an Assistant Attending were difficult, as I expected, but I am grateful to all the other Attendings for making the transition as easy as possible for me. Although I had already been there for one year, all the “firsts� took some getting used to: the first time I signed off on a MRI as an Attending, the first time I performed something as simple as a hip injection as an Attending, the first time I supervised a Fellow in performing a Myelogram, etc. Just as I felt during the first months of Fellowship, during the first months as an Attending, I felt blessed to have so many resources around me, resources that I undoubtedly would not have had if I had left HSS for another practice. I realize that it will still be a long while before the other Attendings start viewing me as a true colleague, but I feel honored to be part of such a reputable team.

CT, Interventional Radiology and Research New CT Scanners Enhance Image Quality and Present Opportunities for Musculoskeletal Imaging Research In 2010, the Department installed two new CT scanners. The scanners include a new 64-slice low-dose CT scanner as well as an additional 16-slice, low-dose CT. Both scanners have improved hardware and software packages, and capture highquality images with lower dosages of radiation in a shorter amount of time. These scanners allow for increased patient throughput, make 3-D and other image reconstructions easier to perform and will allow access to all images via the HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging PACS system. With the arrival of the new scanners, the team at HSS is working with Philips Engineers and Developers to research new imaging protocols that will further reduce metal artifact when using CT to image patients with joint replacement or spinal fusion hardware.

State-of-the-Art Fluoroscopy Suites Help Interventional Radiology Expansion The Interventional Radiology Division operates with two state-of-the-art Fluoroscopy suites and performs orthopaedic, rheumatology, and spine procedures under image guidance and have allowed for an increase in patient throughput, lower radiation dose and improved image quality. The suites allow the team to offer services to more Referring Physicians, which will in turn drive additional growth. Spinal Interventional Procedures and Pain Management procedures have grown 10.4% in 2010. Add-on patient appointments and acceptance of most insurances patients can generally be accommodated on the day of request. The Division is receiving more referrals from Rheumatologists, Orthopaedists, and Spine Surgeons both inside and outside of the HSS system.

The new CT units are also allowing for enhanced treatment therapies and diagnostic capabilities within the Department. The Department offers a guided tumor elimination therapy called radio frequency ablation for tumors such as Osteoid Osteoma. CT-guided biopsies of tumors as well as pain management therapies under CT guidance for the sacroiliac joints and spinal facet joints are also being offered. “Since we’ve added the new and additional CT scanners, which both offer the ability to greatly reduce a patient’s exposure to radiation, we have seen an increase in the number of diagnostic and interventional cases coming into the Department,” said Dr. Gregory Saboeiro, Chief, Divisions of CT and Interventional Radiology.

To further drive the expansion of the Interventional Radiology Division, the team is working directly with our Referring Physicians to better educate their staffs on easier scheduling opportunities, and to provide detailed patient instructions in advance of interventional procedures to further expedite the patient scheduling experience and improve patient satisfaction.

HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging

Our IR rooms use state-of-the-art Fluoroscopy equipment.

“On top of the increase in joint pain management procedures, epidural injections are growing astoundingly,” said Tess Leynes, Nurse Practitioner. “A major factor in the increase is because of our expertise in this area, plus patients are taken right away, as soon as the Referring Physician deems it necessary to have the injection. Radiology accommodates the patient on the same day. For facet injection or ‘difficult’ spine cases, CT is used to better guide the injection. In addition, the Department accepts most insurances. These two factors are helping grow this sector of our business.”


MRI and Research The Division of MRI Focuses on State-of-the-Art Equipment Upgrades and Ongoing Research Dr. Hollis Potter, Chief, Division of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Director, Research along with her team of both Faculty and staff, MRI experts and researchers, have had another successful year. In addition to upgrading one of the units to a new 1.5 tesla magnet, plans were completed to convert the existing highfield open unit to a new, state-of-the-art ultrashort magnet. The new equipment has a wider bore, or hole where the patient lies during the imaging process, and accommodates larger as well as claustrophobic patients. It also scans at a higher degree of detail.

Orthopaedic Surgeons worldwide continue to reach out to the division to learn more about this unique discovery made by the experts at Hospital for Special Surgery Department of Radiology and Imaging. Nonosseous Tissue Assessment Research is also focusing on the use of quantitative MRI data to assess tissue structure and its material properties. Results from this research are helping doctor’s better understand the makeup of tissue, how it functions and its ability to withstand load.

“One of the key decisions in upgrading to this new unit was that we truly believe just because someone is larger or has a fear of a confined space does not mean we should sacrifice image quality,” explains Dr. Potter. Imaging Joint Replacements During the last few years, Dr. Potter and her team have been honing their technique for successfully imaging joint replacements using MRI. Previously, MRI of joint replacement was not possible because the metal from the replacement component would interact with the magnet and produce artifact on the image rendering it impossible to interpret.

In 2010, the team from the MRI Division published 12 papers on the imaging of arthroplasty. This is more than any other institution, which is why experts from the Department of Radiology and Imaging are asked to speak on this subject at conferences worldwide.

The MRI Division is currently working on 30 active research projects funded in part by Cornell Ithaca, General Electric and the National Institutes of Health. “We don’t believe in status quo in our Department,” said Dr. Helene Pavlov. “What is standard elsewhere is never considered standard at HSS. We strive for the best in Musculoskeletal Imaging, which explains why physicians worldwide send their patients to us.” 2010 Annual Report

Research Plays a Primary Role in Advancing Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Dr. Adler and his team have had two papers accepted for publication investigating the post-operative rotator cuff using the Ultrasound contrast agent Definity. The papers illustrate the development of new blood vessels, angiogenesis, following rotator cuff repair (See Figures 1 and 2). The Division, in conjunction with Dr. Anthony Chang of Radiology, Dr. Stephen Fealy and other members of the Sports Medicine Department, are looking at changes in tendon vascularity in the elbow, following PRP, through the use of Ultrasound contrast agents. Dr. Adler reports that the data is promising. “We hope to establish whether or not the growth of new blood vessels occurs at the site of PRP injection, which is speculated to be an important component of healing,” Dr. Adler said.

Along with Dr. Peter Moley in Physiatry and Dr. Gregory Saboeiro, the two colleagues are conducting a research study on the effects of PRP versus autologous blood injection, a procedure whereby a patient’s blood is injected into an area of the body for the purposes of healing, for patients with longstanding hamstring problems. PRP or autologous blood is injected directly into the hamstring to assess the effects of each. Two additional research studies include collaboration with Jamie Edelstein, PT, MSPT, CSCS of Physical Therapy, which looks at the iliopsas muscle in the hip; the other is a study on the role of 3-D imaging in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound.

PRP is gaining traction in the Division of Ultrasound. In 2010, the number of PRP injections increased by 77%

At the 2010 Annual Assembly of the RSNA, Drs. Adler, Loftus and Endo presented on the distribution of injected material following PRP versus autologous blood injections. This research will ultimately give doctors a better idea regarding where and how the material distributes once injected and how it could impact the way these procedures are performed.


Exploring Ultrasound Elastography – A Potential New and Effective Way to Image Soft Tissues The Division of Ultrasound is exploring the use of Ultrasound Elastography through various research projects. The procedure is relatively new and is a non-invasive method that detects and classifies differences in tissue hardness. It has been used successfully in identifying tumors by assessing the stiffness of soft tissue. Dr. Theodore T. Miller, Attending Radiologist, Dr. Ronald S. Adler, Chief, Division of Ultrasound and Dr. Sapna Jain, Chief Fellow, are working on research projects using Ultrasound Elastography. The projects involve the use of Ultrasound Elastography and a type of MRI that is known for its superior qualities in the imaging of tendons. The team is interested in correlating data from Elastography and MRI to better understand the mechanical alterations of tendon pathology and improve the diagnosis of tendonitis. Dr. Hollis G. Potter, Chief, Division of MRI, as well an MRI physicist, and member of the Hospital’s Pathology Department are co-authors on this project.

New Equipment Helps to Grow Business The Division recently purchased a new Ultrasound machine that has real time biplane imaging capability and improved 3-D capability compared with the more conventional Ultrasound transducers. The equipment also has image registration capability for CT and MRI, which should allow for new types of procedures, for instance, in the spine. For image guidance, the system can track the position of a needle tip in real time, even when the needle tip cannot be seen. This is a significant improvement because occasionally the needle is deflected out of the image when patients contract their muscles. This new technology will help obviate the need to go on a ‘hunting expedition’ when a needle cannot easily be seen.

Ronald S. Adler, PhD, MD

High demand has been met with the creation of more time slots, which has helped to reduce patient wait time for scheduling an appointment. Referring Physicians and patients needing an image-guided Ultrasound appointment now have more time options to choose from, significantly helping in appointment availability. 2010 Annual Report

Neuroradiology ospital for Special Surgery has made aggressive efforts to focus on Neuromuscular disorders. That focus led to Dr. Dale Lange joining the Hospital as the Chief of Neurology and the Department of Radiology and Imaging adding Dr. Darius P. Melisaratos, a Board Certified Radiologist specializing in Neuroradiology.

H

With an increase in the need for Neuroradiology expertise, the Department has evolved its offerings. With back-up provided by HSS credentialed consultant NYPH Neuroradiologists, Referring Physicians and their patients are provided with 24/7 Neuroradiology imaging and interpretations. “Sometimes a patient will come in for a knee problem that ends up being a neuromuscular issue. Our state-of-the-art expertise in Neuroradiology and Neurodiagnostics ensures that any patient with an issue that is in Neuro-related has access to the best in imaging and diagnosis. In the last year we have watched this area of the Department grow considerably and are making a concerted effort to grow it even more,� said Dr. Melisaratos.

New Innovations and Research in Spine Imaging r. Richard J. Herzog, Director, Spinal Imaging and Chief, Division of Teleradiology, along with his team harness techniques pioneered at Hospital for Special Surgery Department of Radiology and Imaging for innovative spine imaging. The Department is known for pioneering new musculoskeletal imaging techniques and recently developed a method to improve imaging of joint replacements and other hardware using MRI. This technique is now being adapted by Dr. Herzog and his team for the evaluation of the post-operative spine with instrumentation.

D

“In the past, post-operative MRI evaluation of the spine with instrumentation has always been a challenge. Our team in MRI continues to work on new imaging techniques which will provide the greatest amount of useful information in these difficult clinical cases,” said Dr. Herzog. In addition to innovations in spine MRI, Dr. Herzog and his team are also using new CT hardware and software to enhance spine imaging. The new CT equipment and technology is being used to visualize the vascularity adjacent to the spine prior to surgical fusion. New protocols in CT are also being used by the Department’s Radiologists for optimal imaging despite metal instrumentation in the spine.

Dr. Richard J. Herzog is the Director, Spinal Imaging and Chief, Division of Teleradiology. The HSS Spine Surgeons, Dr. Herzog and the Radiologists collaborate on patient management decisions.

The team is currently collaborating with HSS Spine Surgeons to assess new spine fusion techniques. Lateral transpsoas interbody fusions are now being performed frequently at HSS for older patients with spinal stenosis. During this procedure the surgeon must know the precise location of the nerves and blood vessels within the psoas muscle to ensure a safe access to the fusion site. Dr. Herzog, along with Dr. Kepler, Dr. Bogner and Dr. Huang recently published a paper in the European Spine Journal ‘Anatomy of the psoas muscle and lumbar plexus with respect to the surgical approach for lateral transpsoas interbody fusion,’ to clarify the location of these neurovascular structures. Hopefully this information will reduce the potential morbidity for this fusion technique. The team at HSS continues to spearhead new imaging developments in the field of spine care.

Economics adiology is a specialty very familiar with technological advancements and change, states Richard Fleury, Executive Director, HSS Radiologists. Radiologists have been pioneers in healthcare delivery and early adopters of different methodologies to provide care to patients and consultative services to Referring Physicians. The growth in diagnostic imaging at academic centers like HSS is a direct result of the reliance on these services to provide optimal patient outcomes. In 2010, we experienced another great year of unprecedented growth exceeding expectations for the seventh straight year. However, with rapid growth comes pressure to reduce the overall cost of imaging services, so much so that imaging was the only Physician specialty targeted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.

R

Radiology as a whole needs to once again be ahead of the game and be leaders in defining healthcare decision-making for the future. Right now there are many debates occurring that may affect the way we will provide services in the future. There is no doubt we will soon be faced as a Department with various delivery models and competitive pressures. The use of decision support software or Radiology Benefit Managers (RBMs) to aid in appropriate ordering practices, MU (meaningful use) of patient data, formation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to cut costs and closing the Stark loophole with the help of the newly formed Self-Referral Coalition are all aimed at reducing utilization of imaging. Imaging providers are faced with the need to become ACR accredited to appeal to patient expectations of quality and public concerns over radiation safety and dose. HSS rises to challenges no matter how large. With our strong partnerships with Hospital leadership and support of our vendors and supply partners, we are working in a proactive way to avoid any challenges with government and regulatory organizations. Our relentless efforts in this area of the ever-changing healthcare environment help us to ensure that we consistently deliver quality patient care. The Department of Radiology and Imaging and the HSS Radiologists serve a central and indispensible role in the diagnosis and treatment of Orthopaedic and Rheumatic diseases at HSS. Now, more than ever, it is important that the public and our patients be educated on what academic Radiology and Imaging providers do through research, teaching and clinical services and the overall positive effect on patient well-being and outcomes. It is my sincere hope that this document and the amazing quotes by our Referring Physician providers and grateful patients serves as a testament to these efforts. 22

Education, Fellowship and Research ducation is a key component of the Department’s ongoing reputation. We continue to set the standard for education in Orthopaedic imaging. Such programs as our world-renowned and accredited Fellowship program and the NYPH-Cornell Radiology Residency bring many students and Physician observers from around the globe to learn about the latest in Musculoskeletal Radiology.

E

Expansion of the Fellowship Program The entire Department is committed to continually improving our program and educating HSS Fellows to be the future legacies in musculoskeletal imaging. In 2009, under the auspices of Dr. Carolyn Sofka, who collaborated with the HSS Academic Training Department, the HSS Department of Radiology and Imaging Fellowship program became ACGME certified. Key changes to the Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship program in 2010 included: • The Department of Radiology and Imaging was one of the first Departments in the Hospital to receive CME accreditation for five weekly conferences, and contributes to a wide range of on-site professional and Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs. The Fellows are required not only to attend but also prepare and deliver NYPH Resident conferences. • Bone density scanning, also called Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DXA) or Bone Densitometry, is an enhanced form of X-Ray technology that is used to measure bone loss and monitor treatment for osteoporosis. DXA is today’s established standard for measuring Bone Mineral Density (BMD) and is included as part of the educational experience for the Fellows. • As part of a new Attending-Fellow mentorship program, each Fellow was assigned an Attending mentor. The program, which allows for continual one-to-one feedback, was well received by both Fellow and Attending. • A Chief Fellow was selected from amongst the Fellows to serve as a liaison between the Fellows, Dr. Sofka, Amy Lefkovic, the Administration, and the Attendings.

In 2011, the Department of Radiology and Imaging will increase the number of Fellows from seven to eight.

Dr. Sapna Jain, Chief of the 2010-2011 Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellows.

This year, Dr. Sapna Jain was named Chief Fellow by her colleagues and peers. She provided some keen insight into her role. Explain your role as Chief Fellow The Chief Fellow ensures that call and rotations are distributed as evenly and uniformly as possible and in accordance with service policy. I act as a liaison between the Fellows and Attendings on any issues concerning clinical or research topics. In addition, I help ensure that attendance of the curriculum conferences is maximized, and I assist the Program Director in recommending the best Faculty educators for Grand Rounds and other conferences. As the Chief Fellow, it is also my responsibility to represent the Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship group to the Faculty and external committees. I hold Fellow meetings before the monthly Faculty meeting and present the input of the Fellows at the Faculty and education committee meetings. What do you like about the Fellowship program? The Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellowship program has great variety. Fellows rotate through multiple modalities including Radiography; Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry; Fluoroscopy (specifically for joint aspirations and injections); Ultrasound (diagnostic and joint/soft tissue aspirations and injections); Computed Tomography (diagnostic and interventional); and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. As a Fellow, we are exposed to a high volume of diagnostic and procedural cases and a variety of pathologies, particularly in Sports Medicine and Rheumatology.

Education, Fellowship and Research (Continued)

What do you feel is most unique about the program? The Faculty, both in the Department of Radiology and Imaging as well as in the other departments here at HSS, is the key distinguishing factor for this program. As Fellows, we have the opportunity to work with the best Musculoskeletal Radiologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Rheumatologists, and Neurologists in the field. Ultrasound and MRI are two particular sections that are unique to HSS. We do approximately 1,000 Ultrasound diagnostic and procedural studies a month. In the MRI department, we currently have eight magnets (three of which are 3 Tesla) and perform approximately 2,500 MRI scans a month. The learning potential from this type of volume is immense. Why would you (and the other Fellows in your opinion) choose to recommend this program to other Radiologists? Personally, I wanted to join a program where I would receive a wide exposure to the field and obtain great teaching. You want to learn from the best and this is what HSS offers.

Mentorship Program – A New Resource in the Fellowship Program The mentorship program was developed to provide Fellows with a single Faculty member to whom they could go with concerns, questions, and guidance on many topics. These include, but are not limited to, job search, career advice, professional growth as a Musculoskeletal Radiologist, research issues and progress and interpersonal matters. Each Fellow is matched with a willing Faculty member at the beginning of the academic year. The mentor essentially serves as a more personal guide through fellowship. MENTOR/MENTEE PROFILE Mentor – Dr. Carolyn M. Sofka, Director, Education and Fellowship Training Mentee – Dr. Christina Geatrakas Providing insight into the value of the program, Dr. Christina Geatrakas shared her experiences with the program and with her attending mentor, Dr. Carolyn M. Sofka. What do you like about participating in the mentorship program? I appreciate our weekly meetings, as it gives me a tight time frame in which to set and meet goals, particularly regarding my research projects. I like having one Faculty member who keeps

up with all aspects of my training, and is able to provide excellent advice and guidance based on her experience as a Musculoskeletal Radiologist. Can you offer any specifics on how your mentor has helped you in the Fellowship program? Through our weekly meetings, I have become more proactive with my research projects. Dr. Sofka and I have also spent a lot of time discussing my future plans, which has guided me as I give more careful thought to my career. What research projects are you working on and how have they helped to expand the overall educational program at HSS? I have three active projects currently. I have a study looking at acetabular version on Radiography and CT, a project examining weight-bearing versus non-weight bearing imaging of the ankle, and a project evaluating different radiographic views of the femoral neck. All three projects are on track for presentation or publication, contributing to the growth of the educational and research aspects of the Fellowship.
