2011 A new method for measuring torsional deformity in scoliosis Open Access

Location: http://www.scoliosisjournal.com/content/6/1/7

Conclusions We have developed an easy, reliable and practical method to measure the rotation of the spinal anterior component using a CT scan. Furthermore, we quantified the spinal torsional deformity to the convex side in scoliosis by comparing the rotation between the anterior and posterior components.

2011 Effect of increased MRI and CT scan utilization on clinical decision-making in patients referred to a surgical clinic for back pain

Location: http://cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-54/issue-2/pdf/pg128.pdf

Conclusion: The clinical diagnosis had a poor association with radiologic abnormalities. Despite an increase in the number of MRI and CT scans, the number of patients deemed surgical candidates has not changed.

2011 Prevalence of sacral dysmorphia in a prospective trauma population

Location: http://www.pssjournal.com/content/5/1/8/abstract

Percutaneous sacro-iliac (SI) screw fixation represents a widely used technique in the management of unstable posterior pelvic ring injuries and sacral fractures. The misplacement of SI-screws under fluoroscopic guidance represents a critical complication for these patients. This study was designed to determine the prevalence of sacral dysmorphia and the radiographic...

A case of intra-articular fracture of the knee joint with three layers within lipohemarthrosis by ultrasonography and computed tomography

Location: http://www.nv-med.com/rm/pdf/2000_18_5/319.pdf

We report a case of intra-articular fracture of the knee joint showing three layers within lipohemarthrosis. Sagittal ultrasonography showed three layers (double fluid-fluid level): a superior hyperechoic layer of fat, an intermediate anechoic layer of serum, and an inferior hypoechoic layer of red blood cells. Horizontal computed tomography imaging demonstrated...

CT Scanning OrthoFRACS

Location: http://www.orthofracs.com/clinical-orthopaedics/Investigations/CTscanning.html

Created by Godfrey Hounsfield in 1972. He won a Nobel prize in 1979.
The CT image is created by revolving an XR tube around the patient at high speed, opposite a stationary ring of detectors of very high sensitivity.
  Because of the sensitivity of the detectors a wide range of densities...

Incidental Findings in the Cervical Spine at CT for Trauma Evaluation Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/705930

We identified incidental CT findings in 230 of 1,256 patients (18.3%) who underwent CT of the cervical spine during an initial trauma evaluation. We stratified the incidental findings as trauma-related and not trauma-related. The likelihood of non-trauma-related incidental findings was associated with age (p <0.0001). The likelihood of trauma-related...
