Conventional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is limited in providing sufficient information on microstructure or in quantitatively evaluating certain inflammation processes. Functional MR sequences such as diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) might help to evaluate the sacroiliac joint in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients.

Sacroiliitis, an inflammatory arthropathy associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), is found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) but may go undiagnosed. The aims of this study were to...
Few studies have applied diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) for the comprehensive assessment of gliomas [tumour grade, isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH-1) mutation stat...
The effects of sacroiliitis and syndesmophyte formation on the cross-correlation between spine and hip joint kinematics in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are poorly understood.
Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory condition that mostly affects the spine. This results in back pain and stiffness, and causes difficulty with daily activities. Physical act...
The objectives of this prospective observational study is to explore 1-year clinical response via both Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) and Ankylosing Spondyliti...
Primary objective of the study: - to evaluate the efficacy by (ASAS20) (Assessment in Ankylosing Spondylitis Working Group responses criteria) of SAR153191 in patients with AS (Ankylosing...
Spondyloarthropathies (SpAs) are chronic inflammatory diseases encompassing ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, enteropathic arthropathy, and undifferentiated ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate extended safety and efficacy of etanercept in adults with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
The use of diffusion ANISOTROPY data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging results to construct images based on the direction of the faster diffusing molecules.
A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.
A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
A butyl-diphenyl-pyrazolidinedione that has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and analgesic activities. It has been used in ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.
Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
