For a premier orthopedic surgeon, you might be surprised to learn Dr. Cesar de Cesar Netto [contributor page] has never broken a bone. Even as an athlete playing soccer, the founding member of the Weight Bearing CT Society never sustained an injury like the ones he sees from his patients in his orthopedic work. “I was a goalkeeper,” he says chuckling.
On today’s episode of Curvebeam Connect, host Vinti Singh, Curvebeam Director of Marketing, sits down with Dr. Cesar de Cesar Netto, M.D., Ph.D. of the Hospital for Special Surgery to learn more about the Brazilian surgeon and researcher and discuss advancements in extremity CT scans.
Since the society held its first meeting in Berlin in 2016, the society has presented at several conferences and made significant strides towards its mission, Cesar Netto says.
Specifically, a recent imaging study of patients with adult-acquired flat foot, or flat foot deformity, found that 70 percent of those patients had some degree of subtalar joint subluxation and sinus tarsi impingement. Cesar Netto was a co-author of the study that used weight bearing CT imaging and MRI, as opposed to two-dimension x-ray imaging.
“The foot is such a beautiful biomechanical machine with so many joints that I always thought x-rays couldn’t really demonstrate to you what the deformity consisted of,” he says.
