OBJECTIVE To investigate by high frequency ultrasonography the appearance of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) calcifications, in the most commonly affected sites in CPPD disease, and the relationship between ultrasonographic CPPD deposits and the presence of CPPD crystals in synovial fluid. METHODS Three ultrasonographic patterns of CPPD calcification were identified and 11 patients enrolled. A control group comprised 13 patients with no evidence of CPPD deposits. Synovial fluid was… CONTINUE READING
