The patient, an 82-year-old man known for gout, calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) deposition (CPPD) disease, alcoholic liver disease and hypertension, presented with acute onset of severe, rapidly progressive pain in both hands. His regular treatment included allopurinol (50 mg daily), with colchicine (0.5 mg) and oral or intra-articular prednisolone for the management of recurrent gout flares and acute CPP crystal arthritis.

Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) enables material decomposition and virtual monochromatic images by acquiring 2 different energy X-ray data sets. DECT can detect musculoskeletal pathologic condi...
Formation mechanisms and treatment of the urinary stones are different, depending on their chemical structure. Therefore, determining the stone type plays a key role in planning treatment and preventi...
Accuracy of Quantification of Iodine and Hounsfield Unit Values on Virtual Monochromatic Imaging Using Dual-Energy Computed Tomography: Comparison of Dual-Layer Computed Tomography With Fast Kilovolt-Switching Computed Tomography.
The aim of the study was to compare the accuracy of quantification of iodine and Hounsfield unit (HU) values on virtual monochromatic imaging (VMI) using dual-layer computed tomography (DLCT) and fast...
The aim of the study was to explore the efficacy of iodine quantification with dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) in differentiating thymoma, thymic carcinoma, and thymic lymphoma.
The objective of this research is to evaluate the correlation between DECT and US explorations performed in a routine clinical setting for the measurement of change in tophus size in gout ...
The purpose of this study is to determine presence and volume of monosodium urate (MSU) crystal deposits as determined by dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) imaging in gout subjects tr...
Pathophysiological mechanisms leading to pulmonary hypertension (PH) are complex. Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) can help us to study morphological alterations in patients with PH....
The aim of this study is to evaluate the hepatic perfusion computer tomography and dual energy computer tomography in the assessment of tumor characterization of Hepatocellular carcinoma i...
Comparing two techniques (Subtraction and Dual Energy CT) for functional Chest CT for patients with suspected with pulmonary embolism.
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.
Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.
Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
According to the National Arthritis Data Workgroup, an estimated 6 million people in the United States report having experienced gout at some point in their lives. In fact, gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40....
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
