Radiographic imaging in osteomyelitis: the role of plain radiography, computed tomography, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and scintigraphy.
The diagnostic imaging of osteomyelitis can require the combination of diverse imaging techniques for an accurate diagnosis. Conventional radiography should always be the first imaging modality toExpand
Imaging of osteomyelitis: current concepts.
Osteomyelitis frequently requires more than one imaging technique for an accurate diagnosis. Conventional radiography still remains the first imaging modality. MRI and nuclear medicine are the mostExpand
Takayasu's arteritis in children.
There was a high frequency of positive purified protein derivative and lymphadenopathy with a histological picture of caseating granulomas, suggesting a link between Takayasu's arteritis and an atypical mycobacterial infection. Expand
International Consensus for ultrasound lesions in gout: results of Delphi process and web-reliability exercise.
This, the first consensus-based US definition of elementary lesions in gout, demonstrated good reliability overall and constitutes an essential step in developing a core outcome measurement that permits a higher degree of homogeneity and comparability between multicentre studies. Expand
Orthostatic sympathetic derangement in subjects with fibromyalgia.
In FM, there is a deranged sympathetic response to orthostatic stress, which may have implications regarding the pathogenesis of FM. Expand
Vascular endothelial growth factor and hypertrophic osteoarthropathy.
Patients with primary Hoa and those with HOA and lung cancer have increased circulating levels of VEGF, and this cytokine may play a role in the pathogenesis of HOA. Expand
Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy: consensus on its definition, classification, assessment and diagnostic criteria.
We describe the conclusions of the First International Workshop on Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy, regarding the nomenclature, definition, classification, assessment and diagnostic criteria of thisExpand
Utility of a simplified ultrasound assessment to assess interstitial pulmonary fibrosis in connective tissue disorders - preliminary results
The results provide a new working hypothesis in favor of the utility of a simplified US B-lines assessment as an adjunct method to assess IPF in patients with CTD. Expand
Identification of calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD) by ultrasound: reliability of the OMERACT definitions in an extended set of joints—an international multiobserver study by the
The OMERACT US definitions for the identification of CPPD demonstrated to be reliable when applied to the TFC and AC, meaning the scanning method must be further refined. Expand
Clinical and regulatory perspectives on biosimilar therapies and intended copies of biologics in rheumatology
The differences between biosimilars and intended copies are explored and key concepts related to biosimilARS are described, which may facilitate decision making about the appropriate use of biosimilar for patients with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. Expand
