Fig. 2

Three-dimensional (3D) visualization of rheumatoid arthritis pathological change. Three individual metacarpophalangeal (MCP) heads in patients with rheumatoid arthritis are presented demonstrating erosive disease and osteophytes (left, middle, right panel). Further, loss of trabecular structure (middle panel, bottom row) and increased porosity are visible in all examples (in comparison to Fig. 1). 3D models exactly depict 3D high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography reconstructions
