Decoding Ulnar Wrist Pain: Dr. Glenn Gaston’s Rapid Diagnosis

In a case study, Dr. Glenn Gaston, MD, studied a 19-year-old female patient presenting ulnar wrist pain. Initial X-rays were negative and after six months of wrist brace use, the patient was still focally tender over the dorsal side of the triquetrum. An MRI revealed triquetral edema.
Dr. Gaston leveraged his in-office InReach for a cone beam CT scan, providing results in just 10 minutes. This expedited diagnostic approach confirmed his suspicion of an osteoid osteoma. Surgery was scheduled, resulting in the patient’s successful recovery.
This case underscores the vital role of in-office cone beam CT in navigating orthopedic complexities and achieving positive outcomes for the patient quickly.
