OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between articular chondrocalcinosis and calcification of the atlantoaxial region on a cervical computed tomography (CT) scan and to explore the relation between such calcifications and neck pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS CT slices of the cervico-occipital junction were performed routinely in 49 consecutive patients (male/female ratio 28/21; mean age 70.4 yrs), diagnosed with calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease (CPPD). Of these, 35… CONTINUE READING
