OBJECTIVE. Musculoskeletal functional imaging should encompass the real-time (dynamic) depiction of joints in motion (kinematic). Our goal was to determine the technical feasibility of performing dynamic-kinematic imaging of the knee and wrist joints using a new technique, 256-MDCT. CONCLUSION. Dynamic-kinematic imaging of the wrist and knee using 256-MDCT is feasible to depict anatomic and functional information, warranting further study of diagnostic efficacy, and could augment the current repertoire of joint dysfunction diagnostic testing.
