    MRI and Ultrasound of the Entheses: Perspective on Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

    Dear Editor,

    We thank Dr. Rutkowska-Sak and colleagues for their comments on the use of ultrasound (US) for the diagnosis of enthesitis in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The purpose of our article [1] was to bring together a global perspective on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for enthesitis at different sites using different methods.

    Firstly, we are interested in their comments that enthesitis...

    The diagnostic role of ultrasonography versus magnetic resonance imaging in early diagnosis of enthe

    Dear Editor,

    This review focuses on the diagnostic role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in early diagnosis of enthesitis [1]. The authors make interesting observations about the role of MRI of enthesitis –related spondyloarthritis. Enthesitis is a distinctive pathological feature of spondyloarthritis (SpA) and may involve synovial joints, cartilaginous joints, syndesmoses and extra-articular entheses. Spondyloarth...
