Abstract

In this systematic literature review, we update imaging modalities in gout, with a focus on newer technologies, particularly Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT). Conventional radiography (CR), ultrasonography (US), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and dual-energy CT (DECT) have been used to evaluate different stages and clinical manifestations of gout and hyperuricaemia. We compare and contrast these modalities across the spectrum of this disease and of clinical scenarios and objectives (1).
