Descriptions of spinal MRI lesions and definition of a positive MRI of the spine in axial spondyloarthritis: a consensual approach by the ASAS/OMERACT MRI study group
Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, 05/24/2012
Hermann KGA et al. – This consensus statement gives clear descriptions of disease–related spinal lesions and of definitions of a positive spinal MRI for inflammatory lesions (spondylitis) and structural changes (fat deposition). These definitions can be used to describe findings of spinal MRI in patients with spondyloarthritis (SpA) in daily practice and clinical studies.
