BACKGROUND Plantar pressure measurements are commonly used to evaluate foot function in chronic musculoskeletal conditions. However, manually identifying anatomical landmarks is a source of measurement error and can produce unreliable data. The aim of this study was to evaluate intratester reliability associated with manual masking of plantar pressure(More)
OBJECTIVES To develop a method of scoring bone erosion in the feet of patients with gout using CT as an outcome measure for chronic gout studies, consistent with the components of the OMERACT filter. METHODS Clinical assessment, plain radiographs and CT scans of both feet were obtained from 25 patients with chronic gout. CT scans were scored for bone(More)
OBJECTIVES despite the predilection of gout to the feet, the impact of gout on foot function and biomechanics is currently unknown. The aim of this study was to describe the effects of chronic gout upon function and selected biomechanical parameters associated with gait. METHODS twenty-five patients with a history of gout were compared with 25 age and(More)
