Your gout sir:
Having gout, a painful inflammation of your joints, usually in the feet or knees is bad enough, but diagnosing it is no bargain either (the test involves a needle stick into the offending joint). But a new software algorithm used to detect gout via a scanner is promising a much less invasive test. On the scan CT values of uric acid deposits show up in red, while other bone formations and calcium are displayed in blue, according to Siemens which developed the system.
