OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare image quality and extent of artifacts from scaphoid fracture fixation screws using different computed tomography (CT) modalities and radiation dose protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS Imaging of 6 cadaveric wrists with artificial scaphoid fractures and different fixation screws was performed in 2 screw… CONTINUE READING
