Summary of "Dual-energy computed tomography for the noninvasive diagnosis of coexisting gout and calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
