Value of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography for the detection and quantification of enthesitis vascularization in patients with spondyloarthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate if contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can improve the detection and quantification of the vascularization of mild enthesitis in spondyloarthritis (SpA) and to evaluate the influence of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on such detection. METHODS Fourteen patients with mildly active SpA were evaluated at 3 consecutive… (More)
