CT in Research/Clinic
Tom says “CT forms an essential part of my musculoskeletal clinical practice, for example in assessment of bone tumours, fractures, and joint prosthesis, as well as being the keystone of our general radiology workload. In my research, I collaborate with partners worldwide to apply 3D surface and shape-based analysis techniques to different types of CT imaging data, currently with a focus on weight bearing imaging of joints in the lower limb.”
Statement on OCTA Mission
Tom says “CT is a fast, widely available, and highly detailed technique with excellent contrast and spatial resolution for the depiction of mineralised joint tissues and the ability to provide richly detailed 3D imaging volumes.
“The continued development of low dose weight bearing CT imaging technology means that a 3D CT-based approach to lower limb joints can be argued as the next gold standard over traditional radiography.”
