The lecture will show the conventional ways of imaging most common rheumatically and traumatic conditions in the hand and wrist and show the potential added value of new 3-dimensional and multi-parametric imaging technologies like dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI), PET-CT and PET MRI, ultrasound, dual energy- and conebeam CT of the hand and wrist as promising methods to complement the imaging portfolio that adds further to the understanding and quantification of the pathophysiology, inflammatory load and morphological disease patterns in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriasis arthritis (PsA), crystal deposition diseases (Urate and CPPD), osteoarthritis (OA) and trauma.
