Evaluation of disease activity in ankylosing spondylitis; diagnostic value of color Doppler ultrasonography
Skeletal Radiology, 05/09/2012
Mohammadi A et al. – MRI demonstrated active disease in 27 and inactive disease in 24 patients. CDUS detected pulsatile monophasic wave spectral waveform flow in 22 patients with the active disease, and triphasic in 7 patients with inactive disease and in 8 control patients. The results show that CDUS is a practical and useful tool in the diagnosis of active sacroiliitis.
