Preferred Abstract (Original): 

This study tests various acquisition and reconstruction protocols for MDCT of the wrist to determine the optimal views in wrist imaging. These views include: wrist in prone position, perpendicularly to CT gantry; wrist in prone position with internal and external deviation of the hand and PA wrist image reformatted in CT workstations along the axis of the scaphoid bone.Among these different views of wrist CT, the axial image reformatted along the long axis of the scaphoid provides us with the best diagnostic findings of the scaphoid.
