Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the precision and accuracy of quantitative computed tomography bone mineral analysis in dogs in coronally reconstructed images. Nonhomogeneous tissues, such as bones with fractures or deformities, may be better analyzed if multiplanar reconstruction of the transaxial data could be performed without degradation of information. Our analysis demonstrated that coronal reconstruction of quantitative-computed tomography data was precise (1.2 to 4.7%) and accurate (1.3 to 7.5%) in vitro. The technique displays high-quality images, which can be analyzed at any location within the volume scanned. Quantitative computed tomography of canine osteotomy healing in vivo accurately determined bone mineral density of selected regions of interest. Bone mineral density correlated highly with calcium content of the tissue (R2 = 0.76, P less than 0.0001).
