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 definitions of the remission proposed by literature remain imperfect.
Recently ultrasonography and MRI seem to be helpful in diagnosis and follow-up of rheumatoid arthritis.
Studies in patients with clinical remission are reporting 75 to 90% of persistent MRI and ultrasonography synovitis, 45% of cases with synovial activity.
To our knowledge, in such case few studies showed correlation between persistent imaging synovitis and structural radiographic progression.
On the other hand, no studies with extremity dedicated RMI in patients with remission are reported.
In this preliminary study, the investigators propose to evaluate in patients with rheumatoid arthritis remission and persistent dedicated MRI synovitis the structural radiographic progression at one year.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
