WS 16 - Spectral Analysis of Gouty Arthritis: Practical Approach

March 2, 10:00 - 11:00 CET

Gouty arthritis is the most common arthritis in European countries. To establish the diagnosis and to assess the burden of the disease, dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) was introduced ten years ago and had a major impact in the diagnostic process and disease management of patients with known or suspected gout. This session will include an overview of spectral CT imaging for gouty arthritis, different imaging protocols and approaches for postprocessing and the development of a diagnostic idea. The participants will work on practical cases with suspected gouty arthritis and learn about multiparametric DECT for diagnosis and differential diagnosis of these patients.
