In vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy in polymyositis and dermatomyositis: a preliminary study.

Abstract

The aim of the study is to determine whether biochemical abnormalities, such as lipid, creatine and choline metabolites, are observed in the more distal muscles of polymyositis (PM) and dermatomyositis (DM) patients. 12 patients suffering from chronic active PM/DM and 9 controls underwent a combined proton magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and proton MR… (More)
