Structural bone damage is often considered to be late consequence of inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However this concept may be biased by insufficient quality of imaging hard- and software. Herein we present a novel combination of high-resolution computed tomography (HR-pQCT) with cinematic rendering technique, which incorporates a more advanced lighting model for volume rendering, creating photorealistic and highly detailed 3D images of joint surfaces.
