Objective: To analyze the perception of the relevance of introducing bilingual (Portuguese-English) musculoskeletal imaging education into radiology and diagnostic imaging residency programs, describing the method used. Materials and Methods: To evaluate the relevance of incorporating the bilingual study of musculoskeletal imaging into medical residency programs, we administered a questionnaire, consisting of several multiple-choice questions and one subjective question, to 21 radiology residents at a private tertiary hospital. The residents completed the questionnaire voluntarily and anonymously. Results: Integrating English teaching into radiology training was considered important by 95.2% of the residents. Approximately 90% of residents believe that the method applied at their institution is suitable for learning. Conclusion: The introduction of the English language into the teaching of musculoskeletal imaging in the radiology residency program was perceived positively by the residents, and the preceptors effectively supported those activities.
