Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) versus musculoskeletal ultrasonography (MSUS) in detecting inflammatory arthropathy in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients with hand arthralgia.

 

SSc patients with arthralgia that have no obvious clinical inflammatory arthritis were found to have persistent inflammatory erosive arthropathy in their hands and wrists using MSUS and MRI. MRI is more sensitive than MSUS in this setting. PubMed Rheumatol Int. 2013 Aug;33(8):1961-6. (Also see: Erosive Arthropathy)
