The International WBCT Study Group is comprised of active and passive members from relevant international surgical and radiology foot and ankle societies. The goals of the group include standardizing methodology of measurement practices, offering a platform of communication in the foot and ankle specialties, and creating guidelines and reviews regarding WBCT use at the international level. Research projects are conducted and published collaboratively. While the group functions independently from the industry, it works cooperatively with the different manufacturers of different WBCT devices.
