A simple technique is described for the acquisition of coronal computed tomographic images of the wrist without positioning or immobilizing devices. The technique was used in four cases in which the radiographs were equivocal, to assess healing after scaphoid bone fracture or grafting. The greater resolution of the images provided more definitive information about healing.
