OBJECTIVES A new high-resolution peripheral quantitative CT (HR-pQCT) system allows for in vivo assessment of bone microarchitecture and volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) with an 82 microm isotropic resolution. With this device, the microarchitecture impairment was evaluated in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in comparison with healthy controls and measured the erosion volume at metacarpal heads (MCPs). METHODS In this cross-sectional study, the reproducibility was first assessed… CONTINUE READING
