Case Study: Standing CT for Improved Visualization of Knee Cartilage & Menisci

MRI is the current standard of care for non-invasive visualization of cartilage and menisci, but without utilizing weight bearing methods, a full and accurate evaluation isn’t likely. A recent case study reveals important advantages of weight bearing CT over the standard MRI.

With standing CT, 3D imaging can be obtained under physiological load, offering a more complete assessment picture.Standing CT also provides a clearer view of meniscal position and potential pathology. In addition, cartilage thickness is easily measured, and cartilage delineation is improved.

A weight-bearing image can reveal a variety of knee flexion angles not possible in an MRI knee coil.

Assessment accuracy is a clear advantage, but there is an important financial aspect to consider, with the CT scan costing roughly 40% less than an MRI.

CurveBeam offers the innovative weight bearing CT technology required to give the best care to orthopedic patients. Complete the form below to download the case study in its entirety.
