A Rheumatologist’s Guide to Interpreting Imaging in Spondyloarthritis

by Vivek Arya, Ashish Sharma, Abhinetri KSV

The aim of this Rheumatologist’s guide is to focus on the interpreting imaging in Spondyloarthritis. Imaging in SpA is not just about the sacroiliac joints. Many other features are to be looked into, as described in the book.Plain radiographs are an excellent modality for detecting structural changes.Moreover, structural progression can be easily monitored by radiographs due to their easy reproducibility in terms of cost and radiation exposure. MRI is very helpful in detecting active inflammation. Moreover, inflammation at various entheseal sites and the presence of chronic changes (fatty metaplasia, erosions, sclerosis, and ankylosis) can be very helpful in making a correct diagnosis of SpA in cases where classification criteria for SpA are not met but the clinical suspicion is high.This book is meant for the practicing rheumatologist. It will also be useful for postgraduate students and internists with an interest in Rheumatology.
