Computed tomographic imaging of the musculoskeletal system: Current status

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Computed tomography has emerged as the 'workhorse' of specialized musculoskeletal imaging. It provides rapid, detailed, clinically relevant studies of bones, joints, and associated soft tissues. Applications in trauma, inflammatory disease, neoplasia, pediatric orthopedics, and joint reconstruction are discussed. Advances in prosthetic design, radiation oncology applications, and data acquisition techniques will also be addressed.
