Clinical applications of high-definition microfocal radiography


Recent advances in technology have lead to the development of a high-definition microfocal X-ray unit allowing macroradiographic examination of different parts of the body at × 5 to × 10 magnification and with a high spatial resolution. Its applications in the study of a number of arthritides, metabolic and some other bone diseases are described in terms of early detection of diagnostic features. Emphasis is placed on the advantages of direct accurate measurement of these features, providing a precise evaluation of disease progression and response to therapy.
