Previous studies suggest that sequential technetium-99-hydroxymethyl diphosphonate bone scanning and indium-111 leukocyte scintigraphy may play a role during revision arthroplasty. Preoperative sequential imaging was compared with joint aspiration and clinical assessment during revision knee or hip arthroplasty. Scans were considered positive if indium-111(More)
Traumatic anterior dislocation of the hip represents 11% of all hip dislocations and is classified into superior and inferior types [1]. Whereas inferior anterior hip dislocation is easily recognized on an anteroposterior radiograph of the pelvis, the radiographic appearance of superior anterior hip dislocation is less straightforward, often leading to an(More)
Quantitative radiographic scores for joint space narrowing erosion, and malalignment in the hands and wrists of 200 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were significantly correlated with duration of disease. Nonetheless, most of the 42 patients who reported disease for less than 2 years had evidence of radiographic damage, including 35 with joint space(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the knee was performed in 10 patients with hemophilia. The periarticular and subchondral abnormalities were classified according to the signal intensity from these regions on T1- and T2-weighted pulse sequences. Periarticular abnormalities were detected in 50% of the hemophiliac joints, and fibrous changes were noted in(More)
Radiographs of the hands and wrists of 201 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were scored for erosion, joint space narrowing, and malalignment. The explanatory power of these findings for measures of clinical status was studied with stepwise multiple linear regression analyses. Radiographic scores explained 59.2% of variation in physical joint count(More)
When carefully performed, arthrography is a safe, simple, and accurate method for the evaluation of meniscal abnormalities. Accuracy depends on an understanding of the various tear types, their arthrographic appearances, and their expected locations. The arthrographer must also be aware of other abnormalities, such as meniscal cysts and discoid menisci,(More)
Radiographic and physical joint count findings of the hands and wrists of 148 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were analyzed in a cross-sectional study. Quantitative radiographic scores for joint space narrowing, erosion, and malalignment were correlated highly with joint count scores for limitation of motion and deformity, and were correlated at(More)
