Wrist calcium suppression

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This 23 year-old patient came to the emergency department at UCL Brussels after suffering a fall during a skiing accident. The technologist performed a CT scan on the IQon Spectral CT scanner. The patient then was given a follow up MRI.


This condition might be indicative for other pathological conditions such as bone trauma.

Clinical significance

Visualizing edema in CT is challenging due to the presence of bony tissue obliterating the bone marrow. Currently, the imaging modality of choice is the MRI. With calcium suppressed imaging using the IQon Spectral CT, we can provide additional information that may help in the visualization of bone marrow involvement when bone fractures are suspected.


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