PURPOSE To develop imaging techniques that provide quantitative characterization of bone marrow edema pattern (BME) in wrist joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), including volume, signal intensity changes, and perfusion properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen RA patients and three controls were scanned using 3 Tesla MR. BME was semi… CONTINUE READING
