Advanced Medical Imaging Technique Can Diagnose Gout
August 8, 2011 by Lynn.
A medical imaging technique called dual-energy computed tomography (CT) is proving to be a reliable method to diagnose acute gout in a hospital emergency room setting. The technique can detect vessels and bones and display them in contrast to one another more clearly than conventional imaging techniques.
The technique is being used in Vancouver, BC in Canada, where doctors say it leads to earlier diagnosis and improved gout treatment. To read more about diagnosing gouty arthritis with dual-energy CT on Science Daily, >CLICK HERE.<
