OBJECTIVE To assess the intra-reader and inter-reader reliabilities of interpreting ultrasonography by several experts using video clips. METHOD 99 video clips of healthy and rheumatic joints were recorded and delivered to 17 physician sonographers in two rounds. The intra-reader and inter-reader reliabilities of interpreting the ultrasound results were calculated using a dichotomous system (normal/abnormal) and a graded semiquantitative scoring system. RESULTS The video reading method… CONTINUE READING
