PMID: 35331320.


Early diagnostics of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) remains a challenge. Traditional imaging one-plane sacroiliac joint (SIJ) MRI assessment is used. By introducing a two-plane assessment system, the objective was to analyse the differences in SIJ MRI changes in early axSpA compared with changes in patients with mechanical back pain (MBP) by exploring the differences in volume and location.
