3D Imaging and Templating May Improve Glenoid Positoning in Anatomic TSA

All patients had postoperative, artifact-reduction 3D CT scans to evaluate glenoid position relative to the preoperative plan. No patients in this study were lost to follow up.

The authors found that 3D imaging is a superior to traditional 2D imaging for templating in that it yields superior glenoid implant positioning when performing anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty. The authors also concluded that the addition of PSI did not provide more accurate component positioning.
