Three-dimensional computed tomography imaging: its applicability in the evaluation of extensor tendons in the hand and wrist.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether 3-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) imaging with volume rendering can accurately evaluate extensor tendons in the hand and wrist.

METHODS: Three-dimensional CT imaging was used to evaluate 14 cases. The location where the rupture was suspected was the wrist level in all cases. The accuracy of the image diagnosis was confirmed during surgery in 13 cases.

RESULTS: Three-dimensional CT could identify all extensor tendons proximal to the metacarpophalangeal joint. In the cases with rupture, the location of the distal stump could be identified, whereas that of the proximal stump was uncertain. The tendon stump location confirmed during surgery correlated well with the images.

CONCLUSIONS: This study revealed the usefulness of 3D CT imaging in defining extensor tendons proximal to the metacarpophalangeal joint. This method increased the accuracy and ease of diagnosis and was always useful in surgical planning and patient education.
