How imaging has enhanced knowledge about rheumatic diseases
The presentation will highlight the use of MRI and ultrasound as a research tool in improving the understanding of the pathogenesis of arthritides including inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, and osteoarthritis. Introduction to how imaging using quantitative MRI techniques and ultrasound shear wave elastography can be used to explore the impact of rheumatic diseases on muscles.
