Radiological imaging of joints in children with haemophilia is important to detect abnormalities, grade their severity and monitor the effects of treatment. Scoring systems for staging haemophilic arthropathy have been developed based on plain film or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. Radiographs alone may be inadequate for evaluating joint disease in children with haemophilia on prophylaxis while MRI may be difficult to access and require the child to be sedated. Sonography can be a… CONTINUE READING
