OBJECTIVE There is an unmet need for reliable assessment of structural progression in the sacroiliac joints (SIJ) of patients with spondyloarthritis (SpA), but radiography is unreliable and lacks responsiveness. We aimed to develop and validate a new scoring method for structural lesions based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada (SPARCC) SIJ Structural Score (SSS). METHODS The SSS method for assessment of structural lesions is based on T1… CONTINUE READING
