Welcome to Rheumatology Radiology e-learning module
This is a self-learning rheumatology radiology module which brings the musculoskeletal radiologist to you.
Radiology plays a significant role in establishing diagnosis by detection of synovitis, enthesitis, erosions, sclerosis, among others. Imaging not only helps monitor disease activity, it also helps guide arthrocentesis, therapy and patient stratification.
Remember your ABCDS when reading X rays
A – Alignment (normal, subluxation, dislocation)
B – Bone (fracture, erosions, periostitis, ankylosis, enthesitis, density)
C – Cartilage (cartilage/joint space, uniform & non-uniform narrowing, destruction)
D – Distribution (symmetry, location)
S – Soft tissue (swelling, effusion, calcification)
