Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to describe weight-bearing CT of the lower extremity joints using a novel portable imager utilizing cone-beam CT technology.

CONCLUSION: Cone-beam CT technology with new design and flexible gantry movements allows both supine and weight-bearing imaging of the lower extremities, with a reasonable radiation dose and excellent image quality. Weight-bearing CT of joints can provide important new clinical information in musculoskeletal radiology.
