This study arose from a curiosity to see whether the menisci and the components of the knee joint could be visualized on CT scans.
We wish to report the potential contributions and limitation of CT of the knee on this experience.
CT scans of the knee were done on 63 patients with an Ohio Nuclear Delta 50 FS-2 total body tomographic scanner. The thickness of each scan is 8mm and each scan is displayed on 256×256 matrix. Contrast agent was not administrated.
CT was very usefull method of investigation of osteosclerosis in osteoarthritis, a shape of patella and femoral condyle, and a relationship of their situation, comprehension of destructive area of bone in steroid arthropathy.
However, CT couldn't display the detail of menisci, so we couldn't diagnose the lesions of menisci with CT at present.
