Production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen.
Penetrating electromagnetic radiation emitted when the inner orbital electrons of an atom are excited and release radiant energy. X-ray wavelengths range from 1 pm to 10 nm. Hard X-rays are the higher energy, shorter wavelength X-rays. Soft x-rays or Grenz rays are less energetic and longer in wavelength. The short wavelength end of the X-ray spectrum overlaps the GAMMA RAYS wavelength range. The distinction between gamma rays and X-rays is based on their radiation source.

Accuracy of EBRA-FCA in the measurement of migration of femoral components of total hip replacement. Einzel-Bild-Rontgen-Analyse-femoral component analysis. (1/458)

Several methods of measuring the migration of the femoral component after total hip replacement have been described, but they use different reference lines, and have differing accuracies, some unproven. Statistical comparison of different studies is rarely possible. We report a study of the EBRA-FCA method (femoral component analysis using Einzel-Bild-Rontgen-Analyse) to determine its accuracy using three independent assessments, including a direct comparison with the results of roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA). The accuracy of EBRA-FCA was better than +/- 1.5 mm (95% percentile) with a Cronbach's coefficient alpha for interobserver reliability of 0.84; a very good result. The method had a specificity of 100% and a sensitivity of 78% compared with RSA for the detection of migration of over 1 mm. This is accurate enough to assess the stability of a prosthesis within a relatively limited period. The best reference line for downward migration is between the greater trochanter and the shoulder of the stem, as confirmed by two experimental analyses and a computer-assisted design.  (+info)

The prediction of failure of the stem in THR by measurement of early migration using EBRA-FCA. Einzel-Bild-Roentgen-Analyse-femoral component analysis. (2/458)

We report the ten-year results for three designs of stem in 240 total hip replacements, for which subsidence had been measured on plain radiographs at regular intervals. Accurate migration patterns could be determined by the method of Einzel-Bild-Roentgen-Analyse-femoral component analysis (EBRA-FCA) for 158 hips (66%). Of these, 108 stems (68%) remained stable throughout, and five (3%) started to migrate after a median of 54 months. Initial migration of at least 1 mm was seen in 45 stems (29%) during the first two years, but these then became stable. We revised 17 stems for aseptic loosening, and 12 for other reasons. Revision for aseptic loosening could be predicted by EBRA-FCA with a sensitivity of 69%, a specificity of 80%, and an accuracy of 79% by the use of a threshold of subsidence of 1.5 mm during the first two years. Similar observations over a five-year period allowed the long-term outcome to be predicted with an accuracy of 91%. We discuss the importance of four different patterns of subsidence and confirm that the early measurement of migration by a reasonably accurate method can help to predict long-term outcome. Such methods should be used to evaluate new and modified designs of prosthesis.  (+info)

Excessive paternal transmission in psoriatic arthritis. (3/458)

OBJECTIVE: The differential expression of a disease according to the sex of the disease-transmitting parent has been demonstrated in several autoimmune disorders. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether there are differences in the transmission and expression of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) that are dependent on the sex of the affected parent. METHODS: All probands (patients with PsA) were identified from among the patients attending the University of Toronto Psoriatic Arthritis Clinic. A self-reported family history of psoriasis or PsA was noted for each proband. Differences in parental and offspring transmission with respect to the proband were evaluated. In addition, the expression of PsA according to the sex of the affected parent was assessed at the time of the proband's presentation to the clinic. RESULTS: Ninety-five probands had affected parents: 62 (65%) had an affected father, and 33 (35%) had an affected mother. Thus, the proportion of paternal transmission (0.65) was significantly greater than was expected (0.5) (P = 0.001). Twelve of 74 offspring from male probands (16.2%) were affected with psoriasis or PsA, as compared with 9 of 108 offspring from female probands (8.3%) (P = 0.10). Probands whose fathers were affected had a higher frequency of skin lesions prior to arthritis (P = 0.047), an erythrocyte sedimentation rate > 15 mm/hour (P = 0.044), and a lower incidence of rheumatoid factor (P = 0.044). No differences were noted with respect to age at the onset of psoriasis or PsA, the severity of the PsA, or the frequency of HLA antigens. CONCLUSION: There appears to be excessive paternal transmission in PsA. Further clinical confirmation and elucidation of its genetic basis is warranted.  (+info)

Arthritis of the finger joints: a comprehensive approach comparing conventional radiography, scintigraphy, ultrasound, and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging. (4/458)

OBJECTIVE: A prospective study was performed comparing conventional radiography, 3-phase bone scintigraphy, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with precontrast and dynamic postcontrast examinations in 60 patients with various forms of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), spondyl-arthropathy, and arthritis associated with connective tissue disease. METHODS: A total of 840 finger joints were examined clinically and by all 4 imaging methods. Experienced investigators blinded to the clinical findings and diagnoses analyzed all methods independently of each other. The patients were divided into 2 groups. Group 1 included 32 patients (448 finger joints) without radiologic signs of destructive arthritis (Larsen grades 0-1) of the evaluated hand and wrist and group 2 included 28 patients (392 finger joints) with radiographs revealing erosions (Larsen grade 2) of the evaluated hand and/or wrist. RESULTS: Clinical evaluation, scintigraphy, MRI, and ultrasound were each more sensitive than conventional radiography in detecting inflammatory soft tissue lesions as well as destructive joint processes in arthritis patients in group 1. All differences were statistically significant. We found ultrasound to be even more sensitive than MRI in the detection of synovitis. MRI detected erosions in 92 finger joints (20%; 26 patients) in group 1 that had not been detected by conventional radiography. CONCLUSION: Our data indicate that MRI and ultrasound are valuable diagnostic methods in patients with arthritis who have normal findings on radiologic evaluation.  (+info)

Clinical, radiographic and HLA associations as markers for different patterns of psoriatic arthritis. (5/458)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine whether the five clinical forms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) identified by Moll and Wright (Semin Arthritis Rheum 1973;3:55-78) could be clearly distinguished, especially as the disease evolved over time, to analyse whether radiographic features or HLA associations could define subsets with greater precision and to identify predictors of disease outcome. METHODS: Seventy-three patients (37 males and 36 females) were followed for a median time of 8 yr (range 1-16 yr). A standard clinical protocol was used to assess patients at each visit and two clinical scores. based on the joint areas involved, were defined to evaluate the mode of onset and the evolution of arthritis. X-ray films of the hands, feet and sacroiliac joints were taken and the patients were divided into two categories according to the presence or absence of erosions and an X-ray erosion score was also used. Three classification methods were used to define the different clinical subsets. HLA-A, B and DR antigens were tested by standard microlymphocytotoxicity assays. A multiple linear regression model was used in the statistical analysis. RESULTS: The five classical clinical subsets defined by Moll and Wright did not remain since distinct peripheral arthritis patterns tended to evolve over time. Only two discrete groups were identified, axial disease (AD) (sacroilitis with or without peripheral arthritis) in 29% of cases and peripheral disease (PD) without sacroilitis in 71%. AD was positively associated with the duration of arthritis (P < 0.04), presence of mutilation (P < 0.02) and the joint area score over disease evolution (JASE) (P < 0.02). There were erosions in 71% of the patients. Erosions correlated with the presence of mutilation (P < 0.007) and with the JASE (P < 0.0005). HLA-B27 was found in 43% of patients with AD, but only in 11% of PD patients (P < 0.01). No other clear HLA correlations were found. CONCLUSIONS: Despite the relatively small number of patients, this longitudinal study suggests that only two clinical subsets can be clearly defined in PsA, AD and PD; these are primarily determined on clinical grounds although HLA-B27 is strongly associated with AD. The evolution of PD pattern with time means that narrower peripheral arthritis subsets are of little clinical use.  (+info)

Heritabilities of radiologic osteoarthritis in peripheral joints and of disc degeneration of the spine. (6/458)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the genetic influence on the occurrence of radiologic osteoarthritis (ROA) in the knees, hips, and hands and disc degeneration of the spine in the general population. METHODS: A random sample of 1,583 individuals was drawn to estimate the prevalence of ROA and disc degeneration in the general population. Of 118 probands with multiple affected joint sites who were derived from this sample, we were able to recruit 257 siblings. The variance of ROA and disc degeneration within sibling pairs was compared with the variance between sibling pairs. Heritability estimates for ROA in the knees, hips, and hands and for disc degeneration of the spine were calculated. OA was defined according to radiologic criteria, using the Kellgren/Lawrence grading system. RESULTS: We observed that hand ROA and disc degeneration of the spine were statistically significantly more frequent in siblings than in the random sample, whereas the prevalence of knee and of hip ROA was similar and lower, respectively. Heritability estimates for hand ROA and disc degeneration were statistically significant, P = 0.56 (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 0.34-0.76) and P = 0.75 (95% CI 0.30-1.00), respectively. For knee and hip ROA, no evidence of a genetic effect in the general population was found. Finally, the heritability estimate for a score that summed the number of joints affected in the knees, hips, hands, and spine was 0.78 (95% CI 0.52-0.98). All heritability estimates were adjusted for age, sex, body mass index, and bone mineral density. CONCLUSION: The present study shows that in the general population, there is a strong genetic effect for hand ROA and disc degeneration of the spine. The findings on the total number of joints affected at multiple sites suggest genetic susceptibility to generalized OA.  (+info)

Subperiosteal ganglion cyst of the tibia. A communication with the knee demonstrated by delayed arthrography. (7/458)

We report a patient with a subperiosteal ganglion cyst of the tibia which was imaged by radiography, arthrography, CT and MRI. The images were correlated with the arthroscopic surgical and histological findings. Spiculated formation of periosteal new bone on plain radiographs led to the initial suspicion of a malignant tumour. Demonstration of the cystic nature of the tumour using cross-sectional imaging was important for the precise diagnosis. Communication between the ganglion cyst and the knee was shown by a delayed arthrographic technique, and the presence of this communication was confirmed at arthroscopy and surgically.  (+info)

Placement of intra-articular injections verified by mini air-arthrography. (8/458)

OBJECTIVE: To develop and assess a simple, inexpensive method for ascertaining the placement of intra-articular injections for knee osteoarthritis METHODS: During a one year period patients with "dry" osteoarthritis of the knee who received intra-articular therapy were tested by air-arthrography. Along with triamcinolone and lignocaine (lidocaine), 5 ml of air was injected into the joint. On subsequent lateral and anterior-posterior radiographs a correct placement was verified by a sharply defined shadow of air in the suprapatellar pouch, while extra-articular air was diffusely spread in the surrounding tissue. RESULTS: In 51 of 56 cases the injection was correctly placed. In the remaining five cases the injection was immediately repeated and positioned within the joint. No adverse events were seen that could be ascribed to the use of air during the study, although bleeding in the quadriceps was seen one week after an extra-articular injection. CONCLUSION: With mini-air arthrography, it is possible to test the placement of intra-articular injections in knee joints. The method is proposed as a learning tool as well as providing a means of quality assurance in studies involving intra-articular injections.  (+info)

In phantoms, all CT scans showed a linear correlation between increasing iodine concentrations and mean HU values of contrast media and radiation dose, respectively (r = 0.98-0.99, P , 0.01). Dose-length product remained constant for MDCT scans. Signal-to-noise ratio for phantom water linearly decreased in all FPCT scans with increasing iodine concentrations. Contrast-to-noise ratio curves showed reduced slope at iodine concentrations higher than 75 mg/mL. FPCT arthrography after intra-articular administration of 5 to 6 mL of a 25% dilution of iopromide (Ultravist 300 mg/mL, Bayer HealthCare, Berlin, Germany) was successfully performed in all 4 animal joint specimens. Kappa values for inter-reader agreement of qualitative image analyses were 0.62 to 0.91. Image and depiction quality of 20-s FPCT scans were similar or superior compared with standard MDCT (P , 0.005 ...

Results in 1994, 28 patients and in 1998, 52 patients were diagnosed with RA or probable RA (n = 1, n = 2, resp.). At presentation, there were no differences in sex distribution, mean age, duration of symptoms, number of inflamed joints, mean ESR, percentage positive for Rheumatoid Factor-IgG, or Sharp/van der Heijde score. Mean duration after presentation before a DMARD was started in 1994 was 7.9 months, in 1998 1,8 months. After 2 years follow-up, 36% of patients included in 1994 were still without DMARD-treatment, and of 36% who started on antimalarials, 60% were still on those drugs. Of the patients included in 1998, 4% had received no DMARDs in the next 2 years, and 63% resp. 13% received sulphasalazin resp. methotrexate as first drug. Of the 20% who started on antimalarials, 60% had discontinued and started another DMARD after on average 6 months. The average progression of the Sharp/van der Heijde score was 36.5 for the patients included in 1994, and 9.5 for those included in 1998. ...

Abstract. BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate if an association existed between the reflected head of rectus femoris avulsion injuries and labral tears in pediatric patients referred for magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evaluation.. METHODS: Electronic medical records of the patients between the ages of 12 and 18 who were treated at the hospitals affiliated by McMaster University between June 2000 and November 2010 with a diagnosis of rectus femoris avulsion injuries were retrospectively identified and analyzed. Patients were included if they had magnetic resonance imaging or MRA images of their hip.. RESULTS: Nine patients with avulsion injuries of the rectus femoris muscle were identified. The patient population consisted of 4 females and 5 males (range, 8 to 17 y, mean age 14 y). All injuries occurred during sports activity, which included running and kicking during soccer, skating in hockey, and a squatting exercise. MRA examination ...
The most important findings of this study were that the elastic modulus of the CHL was negatively correlated with forward flexion, external rotation in the neutral position, and 90° abduction with external rotation in the 30° external rotation position. Furthermore, the elastic modulus tended to increase with age, irrespective of the side of dominance, and measuring it in the 30° external rotation position was more closely associated with ROM restriction in 90° abduction with external rotation (aged ,40 y) and in external rotation (aged ,60 y).. The CHL attaches to the horizontal limb of the coracoid process and covers the rotator interval,23 extending to envelop the entire supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and subscapularis muscles and their insertions.4 The CHL is composed of irregular and sparse fibers with an abundance of type III collagen, has no boundary with the superior glenohumeral ligament, and provides ligament flexibility.4,24.

For more than 25 years, the Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project (JoCoOA) in Smithfield, NC has established itself as one of the premier longitudinal research studies world-wide regarding the epidemiology of osteoarthritis. Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health, and multiple other sources, it is internationally recognized as the flagship study of the UNC Thurston Arthritis Research Center. It was one of the first studies in the US to examine the incidence, prevalence and progression of osteoarthritis in African American and white men and women in a rural county. The hallmark of this study is its population-based cohort. The strength of a population-based study is that results can be applied to the general population regarding lifetime risk or prevalence of a disease. Stability is of paramount importance in the life of a research study. The Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project has been continuously managed by the same research team, ...
Chronic MCL tears may be detected by calcification adjacent to the medial femoral condyle (8). Arthrography is not of significant importance in detecting MCL tears. Arthrographic demonstration of leakage of dye in an assesment of degree of laxity is not of significant value (5), but in complete MCL tears, contrast leakage will be presented in the vicinity of the ligament (6, 8, 13). The arthrographic diagnosis of MCL tears must be performed within 24-36 hours, by time the tears will not seal off (5). Since lateral collateral ligament (LCL) is an extracapsular structure, arthrographic evaluation of this anatomic structure can not be done (5, 8, 13). In a study reported by Bonomo, duble- contrast arthrography was found to be accurate in the diagnosis of the type of meniscal tears (3). In OCD lesions, favorable results have been obtained with double contrast arthrography in children (7), and adults (13). This is inconsistent with achievement of good results in articular cartilage diagnosis (6). ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Imaging of hip and pelvis injuries. AU - Flemming, Donald. AU - Walker, Eric. PY - 2010/1/1. Y1 - 2010/1/1. N2 - It is extremely important to provide the interpreting radiologist with a detailed and accurate history in order to avoid under-appreciation of subtle findings on the requested study. When interpreting plain radiographs, do not focus just on the femoral head and hip joints. The scan must also include the sacroiliac joints, lumbar spine, pubic symphysis, obturator foramen, and adjacent soft tissues as well. If intra-articular pathology is suspected, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) should be performed on a high field system with a narrow field of view (as opposed to an open low field magnet). Magnetic resonance arthrography (MRA) is the preferred method of assessment of cartilage pathology in the hip joint. Stress fractures present on MR as a linear band of signal replacing normal bone marrow. If femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is suspect, radiography should ...

Objective. To validate the definitions of minimal disease activity (MDA) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to compare abatacept to control with respect to patients attaining a state of MDA.. Methods. Two randomized controlled trials comparing abatacept to control in patients with RA were considered: ATTAIN and AIM. Core set measures, Disease Activity Score 28-joint count (DAS28), and, for AIM, radiographic scores were available. The core set and DAS-based definitions for MDA were calculated and the number of patients in the treatment groups meeting the definitions was compared to determine sensitivity of the criteria to treatment differences and patient severity. The number of times achieving MDA was compared to the change in Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), and for the AIM study compared to change in radiographic scores.. Results. For both definitions of MDA, the change in radiographic scores showed a continual decrease in progression the more often a patient was in MDA. The ...

Ionisierende Strahlung transportiert Energie. Wenn diese Strahlungsenergie auf biologisches Gewebe - zum Beispiel im menschlichen Körper - trifft, wird sie vom Gewebe aufgenommen (absorbiert). Die aufgenommene Energie kann vielfältige Wirkungen hervorrufen. Ob und in welchem Ausmaß eine Strahlenbelastung eines Organismus zu einem gesundheitlichen Schaden führt, hängt von der absorbierten Strahlendosis, der Strahlenart und davon ab, welches Organ oder Gewebe des Körpers hauptsächlich betroffen ist. Wenn die Strahlendosis sehr hoch ist, kann das Gewebe oder auch der gesamte Organismus absterben. Die Strahlenschäden können aber auch repariert werden. Wenn die Reparatur aber fehlerhaft durchgeführt wird, kann dies langfristig zum Beispiel zur Entstehung von Krebs oder Leukämie führen.. ...

(
  • What is Direct Arthrography? (
  • With direct arthrography, however, the contrast material is injected directly into the joint by a radiologist. (
  • Direct arthrography is preferred over indirect arthrography because it distends or enlarges the joint thus allowing for enhanced imaging of small internal structures. (
  • There are several methods to perform direct arthrography. (
  • Conventional direct arthrography of a joint often uses a special form of x-ray called fluoroscopy to guide and evaluate the injection of iodine contrast material directly into the joint. (
  • As in conventional direct arthrography, the contrast material outlines the structures within the joint, such as cartilage, ligaments and bones, and allows them to be evaluated by the radiologist after the MR images are produced. (
  • CT direct arthrography uses the same type of contrast material as conventional direct arthrography and may be supplemented by air to produce a double contrast CT arthrogram. (
  • No special preparation is necessary before direct arthrography. (
  • An alternative to direct arthrography (where contrast is injected into the joint) is indirect arthrography . (
  • For direct arthrography, a glenohumeral joint injection is carried out commonly under fluoroscopy or CT guidance, although ultrasound guidance can also be used 1 . (
  • The term arthrogram may be used interchangeably with arthrography. (
  • Arthrography or an arthrogram is used to help physicians evaluate alterations in structure and function of a joint and help to determine the possible need for treatment, including surgery or joint replacement. (
  • Arthrography allows radiographic examination of a joint after injection of a radioopaque dye, air, or both (double-contrast arthrogram) to outline soft tissue structures and the contour of the joint. (
  • This anatomic study aimed to assess the presence and site of communication between the distal interphalangeal joint and the navicular bursa in the horse by computed tomography arthrography. (
  • Sixty‐six pairs of cadaver forelimbs were injected with contrast medium into the distal interphalangeal joint and imaged by computed tomography arthrography. (
  • Distinguishing between these entities can be facilitated by the addition of intra-articular contrast with MR arthrography. (
  • As in other types of arthrography, a major purpose is to make visible intra-articular structures like the synovial lining of the capsule, articular cartilages, and abnormal contents of the joint. (
  • Contrast media in MR arthrography of theglenohumeral joint: Intra‐articular gadopentetate vs saline: Preliminary results. (
  • FPCT arthrography after intra-articular administration of 5 to 6 mL of a 25% dilution of iopromide (Ultravist 300 mg/mL, Bayer HealthCare, Berlin, Germany) was successfully performed in all 4 animal joint specimens. (
  • Single contrast arthrography is far more superior in diagnosing intra-articular osteocartilaginous loose bodies, utilizing negative contrast media (10, 13). (
  • According to the researchers, the advantages of MDCT arthrography over other methods of diagnosis such as X-ray and MRI include better 3D evaluation, higher resolution, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and better tissue contrast. (
  • Indirect arthrography is a medical imaging technique in which contrast material is injected into the blood stream and eventually absorbs into the joint. (
  • Similarly, direct MR arthrography also involves the injection of a contrast material into the joint. (
  • 4 MR arthrography can be very helpful for articular surface tears of the rotator cuff and typically demonstrates linear contrast, tracking into the substance of the tendon. (
  • In arthrography, a long, thin needle is used to put contrast dye right into the joint and a series of X-rays is taken with the joint in various positions. (
  • Potential contrast agents for MR arthrography: In vitro evaluation and practical observations. (
  • A normal arthrography exam will show proper placement of the dye or contrast medium throughout the joint structures, joint space, cartilage, and ligaments. (
  • The arthrographic contrast will depend on whether CT or MRI arthrography is being carried out. (

  • Arthrography is a type of medical imaging used to help evaluate and diagnose joint conditions and unexplained pain. (
  • Practically any joint that can be accessed by a needle can be imaged using MR arthrography. (
  • MR arthrography of the shoulder has proven to be the gold standard imaging technique for evaluation of shoulder joint pathology and can be particularly useful for evaluation of labroligamentous abnormalities. (
  • 4 The advantages of MR arthrography are particularly evident when evaluating acute pathology in younger, active patients with relatively little degenerative joint disease. (
  • Arthrography may be done on a joint when there has been persistent and unexplained pain, discomfort, loss of motion, and/or changes in the way the joint works. (
  • Arthrography is not recommended for people with active arthritis or joint infections. (
  • Canine arthrography of this joint has received little attention in the veterinary literature. (
  • Infection or joint damage are possible, although not frequent, complications of arthrography. (
  • This case illustrates an atypical bifocal location of giant subchondral cysts in the hip joint mimicking lytic tumors, in the absence of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and highlights the role of CT arthrography in identifying this condition. (
