The objective of this study was to evaluate early changes in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and clinical disease activity measures as predictors of later structural progression in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Evaluating radiographic progression is a key component of the follow-up of patients with RA. Existing scores are ill-suited to everyday clinical practice. The objective here was to validate a new simp...
In early RA, some patients exhibit rapid radiographic progression (RRP) after one year, associated with poor functional prognosis. Matrices predicting this risk have been proposed, lacking precision o...
The effect of TNF-α inhibitors (TNFi), with or without concomitant NSAIDs, on radiographic progression in axial SpA remains unclear. Therefore, we performed a systematic literature review up to Janua...
Secukinumab, an anti-interleukin (IL)-17A monoclonal antibody, has demonstrated low radiographic progression over 4 years in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). An adalimumab (tumor necrosis f...
Using a longitudinal observational cohort of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients, we sought to identify progression rates, and factors predictive of spinal progression. As a secondary aim we analyzed...
The major aim of treatment for rheumatoid arthritis is remission. Nevertheless, structural radiographic progression is observed in 15 to 20% of patient getting remission. Numerous definiti...
Psoriatic arthritis is related with chronic inflammation and progressive radiographic damages, and it in turn lead to disability and loss in function-ability. Recent advance in treatment p...
It is known from the COMET-trial that patients who start Enbrel treatment early have a great chance of reaching clinical remission and radiographic nonprogression. It is still unclear, how...
This is a prospective randomized phase II clinical trial where patients who are receiving enzalutamide in the pre-chemotherapy space are randomized upon objective progression (radiographic...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common respiratory disease in premature infants, the incidence of which is increasing in recent years. It seriously affects the survival rate and qual...
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Thorium oxide (ThO2). A radiographic contrast agent that was used in the early 1930s through about 1954. High rates of mortality have been linked to its use and it has been shown to cause liver cancer.
Use of optic and geometric techniques to enhance radiographic image quality and interpretation. It includes use of microfocal X-ray tubes and intensifying fluoroscopic screens.
Computer systems or networks designed to provide radiographic interpretive information.
Clinical management approach wherein immediate therapy is not provided but there is a period of observation during which periodic tests monitor patient and the progression of the illness. (Driffield T, Smith PC Med Decis Making. 2007 Mar-Apr;27(2):178-88)
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Arthroplasty Joint Disorders Orthopedics Spinal Cord Disorders Orthopedics is the science or practice of correcting deformities caused by disease or damage to the bones and joints of the skeleton. This specialized branch of surgery may ...
