Recent advances in cone-beam CT, including scanners for weight-bearing imaging of the extremities and high-resolution CMOS detectors, are enabling new quantitative applications in orthopedics: micro-morphometry of trabecular bone, measurements of bone mineral content, and assessment of joint morphology and biomechanics under load. The underlying algorithmic developments involve model-based reconstruction using models of system blur and polyenergetic x-ray propagation, and methods for enhanced visualization and statistical analysis of micro and macroscopic features of skeletal anatomy.
