MRI in Rheumatoid Arthitis
Magnetic resonance imaging of the hand in rheumatoid arthritis : New scientific insights and practical application.
"Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a sensitive diagnostic modality for the detection of inflammatory changes in peripheral joints. Nevertheless, the widespread clinical use of MRI in assessing patients with early rheumatoid arthritis is still hampered by the technical complexity and higher cost of MRI compared with conventional radiography. The MRI changes associated with rheumatoid arthritis are synovitis, tenosynovitis, erosions, and bone marrow edema."
