19 CT for complex fractures (a) A plain x-ray shows a fracture of the calcaneum but the details are obscure. CT sagittal and axial views (b,c) give a much clearer idea of the seriousness of this fracture. New multi-slice CT scanners provide images of high quality from which multi-planar reconstructions in all three orthogonal planes can be produced. Three-dimensional surface rendered reconstructions and volume rendered reconstructions may help in demonstrating anatomical contours, but fine detail is lost in this process.

Structural deformity A deformity which results from a permanent change in anatomical structure cannot be voluntarily corrected. It is important to distinguish postural scoliosis from structural (fixed) scoliosis. The former is non-progressive and benign; the latter is usually progressive and may require treatment. ‘Fixed deformity’ This term is ambiguous. It seems to mean that a joint is deformed and unable to move. Not so – it means that one particular movement cannot be completed. Thus the knee may be able to flex fully but not extend fully – at the limit of its extension it is still ‘fixed’ in a certain amount of flexion.

New multi-slice CT scanners provide images of high quality from which multi-planar reconstructions in all three orthogonal planes can be produced. Three-dimensional surface rendered reconstructions and volume rendered reconstructions may help in demonstrating anatomical contours, but fine detail is lost in this process. Clinical applications Because CT achieves excellent contrast resolution and spatial localization, it is able to display the size, shape and position of bone and soft-tissue masses in transverse planes.
