The objectives of this study were to study with Power Doppler US (PDUS) the SI joints (SIJs) of patients with suspected active sacroiliitis, to describe SIJ flows with spectral wave analysis (SWA) on Doppler US, and to correlate US data with both clinical characteristics and presence of SIJ bone marrow oedema (BME) in subsequent MRI.
