Dr Rajesh Botchu

Consultant Radiologist


Specialises in

I work as a Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist. My practise within the NHS is at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham. I underwent radiology training on the East Midlands (Leicester) Rotation. During my training, I did sub speciality training in Musculoskeletal Radiology at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Birmingham and CIM, Geneva, Switzerland.

During this time I gained further expertise in musculoskeletal imaging and musculoskeletal intervention including vertebroplasty. I have developed in-depth expertise in the imaging of orthopaedic and spinal conditions as well as sports related injuries. I perform musculoskeletal ultrasound, CT, MRI, whole-body MRI and musculoskeletal interventional procedures.
