Objective: Radiographic monitoring of treatment success in inflammatory diseases affecting hand and finger joints is limited to semi-quantitative rating of standard X-rays. High resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) has been utilized successfully in other locations, e.g. distal[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
