Gout in left foot

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This patient came to Aarhus Universitetshospital with swelling in both feet, with particularly severe pain in the left foot, and was referred for a lower extremity scan on the IQon Spectral CT system.

Image scan parameters

  • 15.0 mGy CTDIvol
  • 490.5 mGy x cm DLP
  • 7.3 mSv effective dose 

* AAPM Technical Report 96

Clinical significance

The IQon Spectral CT delivers valuable clinical insights such as tissue characterization and visualization for confident disease management. And because spectral information is always on, additional data is available whenever a deeper analysis is needed.

In this case, the IQon Spectral CT helped the clinician identify gout in the foot using conventional CT with uric acid fused view.

* The IQon Spectral CT is not yet CE Marked. Not available for sale in all regions.

** Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
