Taking into account low radiation dose,
high spatial resolution with the ability to identify even less than 1 mm bone structural remodeling,
and relatively low direct cost of the study,
CBCT could be considered as a first stage method for the diagnosis characteristic changes of the hand and wrist bones and joints in patients with PsA.
this technique could be used in dynamics,
while monitoring the therapy effectiveness,
replacing gradually SR.
Application of the standardized protocol for hand and wrist CBCT in patients with PsA allows unification and structuring of the examination description and accelerates its completion.
use of the suggested protocol simplifies interpretation of the obtained results,
when CBCT is used to assess the hand and wrist pathological changes in dynamics,
for determining the response to the treatment being provided.
