OBJECTIVE Early diagnosis of spondyloarthritis (SpA) is sometimes difficult owing to the lack of reliable diagnostic criteria. The objective of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of detecting enthesitis by power Doppler ultrasonography (PDUS) in patients with suspected SpA. METHODS A prospective single-centre cohort study was performed in patients with symptoms suggestive of SpA (inflammatory back pain, arthritis, enthesitis or dactylitis, HLAB27+ uveitis) who underwent… CONTINUE READING
