New medical imaging technology may transform osteoarthritis assessment
Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is a growing problem among older adults. It is gradual, painful and leads to a loss of motion over the months and years. Dr. Nikolas Knowles is studying a new imaging technology to assess shoulder osteoarthritis. Called dual-energy computed tomography (DECT), it can detect changes in multiple tissues, not just cartilage, which has the potential to change how medical imaging is used to quickly and cost-effectively diagnose early osteoarthritis and assess treatment options.
