  • Slide 1 - Imaging for Arthritis NP/FP Outreach Curriculum in Rheumatology September 16, 2010 Dr. Sherry Rohekar
  • Slide 2 - Outline Introduction to imaging modalities Focus on plain radiography OA RA PsA AS Gout Pseudogout
  • Slide 3 - X-rays Taking a 2-dimensional image of a 3-dimensional structure Superimposition of structures can thus obscure pathology Quality is also affected by patient positioning, exposure techniques Multiple views of the same area are useful Good for: fractures, bone lesions, osteophytes, joint space narrowing, erosions, cysts
  • Slide 4 - Computed Tomography (CT) Also uses x-rays, but is superior than plain radiographs Improved contrast 3-D imaging Attenuation of the x-ray beam travelling through tissues is measured from multiple angles Substantially increased patient exposure to radiation when compared to plain films Good for: fractures, subluxations, sclerosis, cystic bone lesions, evaluation of surgical hardware
  • Slide 5 - Ultrasound (US) Uses the interaction of sound waves with living tissue to produce an image Doppler modes allow the determination of the velocity of moving tissues (i.e., blood flow) User dependent, so requires an experienced technician who can make real-time measurements Difficult to assess all planes Good for: joint effusions, tenosynovitis, ganglia, erosions in RA, bursitis, tendonitis, and for guided injections/aspirations
  • Slide 6 - Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Based on the absorption and emission of energy in the radiofrequency range of the electromagnetic spectrum No ionizing radiation exposure, superior soft tissue contrast resolution, excellent for the assessment of soft tissues, can image in multiple planes Takes a long time to get access to scanner Good for: tenosynovitis, joint effusions, synovial proliferation, cysts, erosions, cartilage loss, reactive bone changes
  • Slide 7 - Nuclear Scintigraphy In addition to showing anatomy, also provides information about underlying physiology Most commonly used for MSK imaging: technitium-99m methylene diphosphate (Tc-MDP) Can detect synovial hyperemia on the blood pool phase and periarticular uptake on the delayed phase in joints affected by inflammatory arthritis VERY nonspecific, most rheumatologists consider the results to not be useful in clarifying the diagnosis Good for: determining total number and symmetry of joints involved
  • Slide 8 - Approach to an Image Soft tissues: effusions, calcification, masses Mineralization: diffuse demineralization, periarticular demineralization Joint narrowing and subchondral bone: narrowing, subchondral sclerosis, intraarticular bodies, ankylosis Erosions: central (articular surface), marginal (bare area), periarticular, mutilans Proliferation: osteophytes, periostitis Deformity: varus/valgus, flexion/extension, subluxation, dislocation, collapse Distribution: monoarticular, pauciarticular, polyarticular, symmetric/asymmetric
  • Slide 9 - Osteoarthritis Joint space narrowing, osteophytes, subchondral sclerosis, cysts Joint effusions are not uncommon Early osteophytes look like sharpening of the joint edges Distribution: weight bearing joints (hips, knees, back) In the hands: DIPs, PIPs, CMC of thumb Shoulder: glenohumeral OA usually secondary to rotator cuff disease

  • Slide 15 - ppt slide no 15 content not found
  • Slide 16 - Rheumatoid Arthritis RA characterized by synovial proliferation (pannus), bursitis and nodules Can cause ill-defined soft tissue planes and prominances on plain films Nodules appear as focal soft tissue masses especially at the olecranon bursa and areas of friction Tenosynovitis can appear as diffuse soft tissue swelling, commonly seen at the wrist Periarticular osteoporosis is an early finding , but can also see generalized osteoporosis
  • Slide 17 - Rheumatoid Arthritis Characteristic lesions are erosions in the marginal (bare) area Pannus erodes the bone at the margin of the joint capsule where the redundant synovium exits, next to the articular cartilage Osseous proliferation is not commonly seen with RA, but can be seen with secondary OA in joints with RA Subchondral cysts may be large Earliest changes are usually in the hands and feet Ulnar styloid soft tissue swelling, extensor carpi ulnaris tenosynovitis
  • Slide 18 - ppt slide no 18 content not found
  • Slide 19 - Marginal erosion Erosions Soft tissue swelling
  • Slide 20 - ppt slide no 20 content not found
  • Slide 21 - Rheumatoid Arthritis Deformities Subluxations at the MCPs and MTPs Ulnar deviation of the digits Swan-neck and Boutonniere deformities
  • Slide 22 - Severe ulnar deviation Severe erosions of MCPs Complete destruction of the wrist Resorption of the carpals and the heads of the metacarpals Radial deviation of the wrist
  • Slide 23 - Boutonniere deformity of the thumb Flexion with dislocation of the first MCP joint Hyperextension of the IP joint
  • Slide 24 - Rheumatoid wrist: articular destruction, carpal fusion and carpal collapse. Severe destruction of the distal radius and ulna.
  • Slide 25 - Rheumatoid foot Multiple osseous erosions and defects at the medial and lateral margins of the metatarsal heads Marginal erosions at the bases of the proximal phalanges (arrows)
  • Slide 26 - Rheumatoid foot Medial and lateral erosions of the 5th metatarsal head Subluxation of the 5th MTP joint
  • Slide 27 - Rheumatoid foot Characteristic erosion along the medial margin of the proximal phalanx of the great toe Subchondral cyst at the base of the distal phalanx
  • Slide 28 - Soft tissue findings in rheumatoid knee Synovial effusion in the suprapatellar pouch and posterior recesses
  • Slide 29 - Atlantoaxial subluxation in RA Always a concern in patient with longstanding RA and neck pain or cervical neurological symptoms
  • Slide 30 - Order a view of the atlantoaxial articulation through an open mouth to fully assess. This shows lateral atlantoaxial subluxation of the odontoid process with respect to the lateral masses of the atlas.
  • Slide 31 - Psoriatic Arthritis Characterized by erosions and bony proliferations RA does not typically have new bone formation Asymmetric distribution Typical “ray” distribution (involves several joints along a single digit) Can involve the axial skeleton, as in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) Soft tissue findings: fusiform soft tissue swelling around the joints; can progress so the whole digit is swollen (sausage digit or dactylitis) “Fluffy” periostitis at the entheses Marginal erosions also often show fluffy periostitis from new bone formation
  • Slide 32 - Psoriatic Arthritis Deformities Pencil and cup – end of bone looks like it has been through a pencil sharpener, reciprocating bone becomes cupped Telescoping of one bone into another Complete destruction of bone (arthritis mutilans)
  • Slide 33 - Psoriatic hands Erosive changes at the DIPs and PIPs Sparing of MCPs and wrists
  • Slide 34 - Arthritis mutilans Pencil and cup deformity Pencilling

  • Slide 39 - ppt slide no 39 content not found
  • Slide 40 - Chunky, non-marginal syndesmophytes typical of psoriatic arthritis
  • Slide 41 - Asymmetric sacroiliitis with left sided erosions and sclerosis
  • Slide 42 - ppt slide no 42 content not found
  • Slide 43 - Ankylosing Spondylitis Changes begin at SI joints and lumbosacral junction, then typically move up the spine SI joints: Initially subchondral sclerosis Then, small erosions cause “pseudowidening” of the SI joints Erosions occur first at iliac side, which has thinner cartilage Remember that the synovial part of the SI joint is the anterior, inferior portion Reactive sclerosis with eventual fusion
  • Slide 44 - Ankylosing Spondylitis Spine Early changes include squaring of the anterior vertebral body Enthesitis (whiskering) and sclerosis (shiny corners) where Sharpey’s fibres mineralize Progressive mineralization of Sharpey’s fibres to form osseous bridging syndesmophytes Ossification of the interspinous ligaments Most commonly involved peripheral joint is the hip

  • Slide 55 - Chondrocalcinosis
  • Slide 56 - Calcifications at the MCPs
  • Slide 57 - Multiple cysts Chondrocalcinosis of the triangular ligament
  • Slide 58 - ppt slide no 58 content not found
  • Slide 59 - Summary Knowing the typical radiographic features of the various rheumatic diseases is important Can help you pare down your list of differentials Always a good idea to look at images yourself Often imaging is done with preconceived notions “No fractures” Ask specifically for evidence of inflammatory arthritis if that is what you suspect
