OBJECTIVE To establish by means of fast spin echo (FSE)-T2-weighted sequences with fat saturation if enthesitis of the flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus tendons is the primary lesion in spondylarthritis (SpA) finger dactylitis. METHODS Eleven dactylitic fingers and their corresponding normal, contralateral fingers, belonging to 6 patients who… CONTINUE READING
