The scaphoid fracture is the most common form of wrist fracture. A common but serous complication in such cases is a scaphoid nonunion, which occurs when the fracture still has not healed after six months. This can eventually lead to arthrosis. Nonunions are often associated with a characteristic deformity. Paul ten Berg uses 3D imaging techniques to investigate this deformity and the degree of arthrosis occurring in the wrist.
