OBJECTIVES Some have suggested that MRI might be the best reference standard for a true fracture among patients with suspected scaphoid fractures. The primary aim of this study was to determine the rate of false-positive diagnosis of an acute scaphoid fracture in a cohort of healthy volunteers. METHODS In a prospective study, 33 healthy volunteers were(More)
PURPOSE This study examined whether multidetector computed tomography (CT) is superior to bone scintigraphy for diagnosis of an occult scaphoid fracture. METHODS AND MATERIALS In a study period of 22 months, 100 consecutive patients with a clinically suspected scaphoid fracture and no fracture on scaphoid radiographs, were evaluated with CT within 24(More)
PURPOSE To determine the interobserver variability among radiologists for computed tomography (CT) diagnosis of scaphoid fractures. METHODS Four specialized musculoskeletal radiologists evaluated the CT scans of 150 consecutive patients who were clinically suspected of having sustained a scaphoid fracture but whose scaphoid-specific radiographs were(More)
BACKGROUND *Equal contributors.Planar bone scintigraphy (PBS) is often advocated for diagnosing occult scaphoid fractures. PBS is a sensitive diagnostic modality, but lacks specificity, which may result in over-diagnosis. PURPOSE To examine, in a pilot study, the potential additional value of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) combined(More)
