Methods Replace the Conventional Sacroiliac Joint Magnetic Resonance Imaging?
Background/Purpose: The purpose of our study was to assess the diagnostic value of two-point Dixon method compared with conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including T1-weighted, T2-weighted, fat saturated (FS) T1-weighted, FS T2-weighted, and short tau inversion recovery (STIR) in diagnosing axial spondyloarthritis (SpA).
Results: Patients had a mean age of 31.7
Conclusion: 3D-modified Dixon method might be another practical novel imaging technique as conventional MRI. The Dixon method is more intuitive than conventional MRI to evaluate sacroiliac joint, moreover, it takes less time.
