Abstract

Abstract Three-dimensional computerized imaging is a new modality of radiological imaging. This new technique transforms the two-dimensional slices of bi-plane CT into a three-dimensional picture by a computer's monitor adjusted to the system. This system enables the physician to rotate the angle of viewing of the desired region to any desired angle. Moreover, this system can delete certain features of different densities from the picture, such as silicone implants, thus improving visualization. Our preliminary results using this technique are presented. The advantages, pitfalls, and suggested future applications of this new technique in hand surgery are discussed.
