Ultrasound of the osteoarthritic joint.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2017 May-Jun;35(3):527-534. Epub 2017 Feb 10.
Annamaria Iagnocco, Esperanza Naredo
Ultrasound (US) has acquired an increasing role in the assessment of joint and periarticular abnormalities in osteoarthritis (OA). It is able to image a large set of abnormalities in this disease which include both inflammatory and structural changes at different peripheral joint sites and it is helpful in guiding local procedures that can be easily and safely performed with optimal patient's tolerance. US is a feasible imaging modality that has become a bedside procedure in the rheumatology clinical practice, thus filling the gap between clinical and radiographic evaluations of patients with OA.

Emergency ultrasound (EUS) has been recognized as integral to the training and practice of emergency medicine (EM). The Council of Emergency Medicine Residency-Academy of Emergency Ultrasound (CORD-AEUS) consensus document provides guidelines for resident assessment and progression. The Accredited Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has adopted the EM Milestones for assessment of residents' progress during their residency training, which includes demonstration of procedural competency in bedside ultrasound.

Ultrasound imaging in juvenile idiopathic arthritis for the rheumatologist.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2014 Jan-Feb;32(1 Suppl 80):S34-41. Epub 2014 Feb 17.
Paz Collado Ramos
The present review provides an update of the currently available data and discusses research issues of US imaging in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). This review also includes a brief description of the normal sonoanatomy of healthy joints in children in order to avoid misinterpretation. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) is a quick, inexpensive, bedside method for evaluating children with no need for anaesthesiological support.

Ultrasound in osteoarthritis.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2014 Jan-Feb;32(1 Suppl 80):S48-52. Epub 2014 Feb 17.
Annamaria Iagnocco
Ultrasound (US) is a valuable imaging modality in the evaluation of joint and periarticular abnormalities in osteoarthritis (OA). It is able to image structural lesions as well as inflammatory changes in early and late disease. US is a relatively inexpensive, safe and quick-to-perform tool that can be used as a bedside procedure in the assessment of patients with OA.

Early therapeutic intervention and use of new highly efficacious treatments have improved the outcome in many patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), but have also led to the need for more precise methods to evaluate disease activity. In adult rheumatology, numerous studies have established the importance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasonography (US), and MRI is considered the reference standard. Nevertheless, due to differences in disease characteristics and the unique features of the growing skeleton, the findings obtained in adults are not directly applicable to children and adolescents.

Bedside ultrasound is an extremely valuable and rapidly accessible diagnostic and therapeutic modality in potentially life- and limb-threatening situations in the emergency department. In this report, the authors discuss the role of ultrasound in quick assessment of pathologic conditions and its use to aid in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.

The use of musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) has increased in a variety of rheumatic conditions, particularly rheumatoid arthritis (RA). MSKUS complements the physical examination by allowing for superior visualization of synovitis and erosive changes compared to conventional radiography and provides detail comparable or supplementary to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This modality is also less expensive than MRI and CT scans, without claustrophobia or other contraindications, while uniquely providing dynamic, rather than static imaging.

The purpose of this study was to determine the utility of bedside sonography to differentiate soft tissue abnormalities from joint effusions.
We conducted a retrospective review of emergency department (ED) patients presenting with joint pain, erythema, and swelling who received bedside sonography. The ED sonographic examinations were performed by emergency physician sonologists who were not involved in clinical assessment and management of these patients.

Imaging the joint in osteoarthritis: a place for ultrasound?

Best Pract Res Clin Rheumatol 2010 Feb;24(1):27-38
Annamaria Iagnocco
Ultrasound (US) is a valuable tool for imaging musculoskeletal changes in osteoarthritis. It shows early and late findings related to inflammation and structural damage. Sonography is a safe tool, which has recently registered an increasing and widespread use, it being considered as a bedside procedure in the clinical assessment of rheumatic patients.

Ultrasonography (US) is a reliable and useful diagnostic tool for the assessment of hip pathology. It depicts changes within the coxo-femoral joint (synovitis, erosions, osteophytes) and in the adjacent peri-articular tissues (calcifications, tendonitis, enthesitis, bursitis) in many rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica ) and in some orthopaedic disorders (septic arthritis, trauma, abscess, painful hip after arthroplasty). It is commonly used both in adults and in children.

In the light of more modern techniques such as sonography and magnetic resonance imaging, the reader may well ask if plain radiography has still a role in the diagnostic work-up of rheumatoid arthritis. However, in daily routine, the value of diagnostic radiography in support of the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is unrivaled. It allows differentiation from other joint diseases, such as osteoarthritis or crystal arthropathies, when the ARA criteria are not conclusive for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
