OBJECTIVES To compare the diagnostic performance of clinical assessment against magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnosed hip arthritis in a juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) population. To determine the clinical and serological predictors of MRI diagnosed hip arthritis. METHODS A total of 34 JIA patients with established disease (mean disease duration 6.3 yrs) had their hip MRIs scored for features of active hip arthritis and hip damage. Results were compared with clinical variables… Expand
