Single photon emission computed tomography combined with computed tomography (SPECT-CT), which combines functional and anatomical imaging, provides superior spatial localization to plain radiography and is more tolerant to metallic artefacts than conventional imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is increasingly used in musculoskeletal imaging to enable accurate anatomical localization of increased tracer uptake, and is particularly useful in assessing metal prosthesis and the… CONTINUE READING
