What are the 5 things that make up the checklist for evaluating joint disease?

  1. Joint Space
  2. Subchondral Bone
  3. Margins of joint
  4. Surrounding Soft Tissue
  5. Miscellaneous

2

What is this showing?

3

What is this showing & what condition it associated with?

Ankylosis of intercarpal joints

Uniform loss of radiocarpal joint

(Associated w/ inflammatory arthritis)

4

What two conditions are demonstrated here?

5

Deformities can be seen in what kind of joint disease?

Degenerative, Inflammatory or Deposition

6

What is shown here?

Calcification of fibrocartilage (normally shouldnt be able to see meniscus)

7

What is shown here?

Calcification of hyaline cartilage

8

What is shown here?

Calcification of Intra-Articular Loose Bodies (not associated with any particular type of joint disease)

9

Fibrocartilage or Hyaline Cartilage calcification are associated with what category of joint disease?

Deposition

10

What is shown here?

Joint effusion (increased fluid) - Abnormal fat pads

Anterior sail sign, Posterior fat pad

11

What is shown here?

Joint Effusion in knee

12

What is shown here?

Joint Effusion ankle joint

13

What is shown here?

Abnormal Air in the joint (disc)

Also osteophytes and thickened end plates

Associated with Degenerative joint disease

14

What is shown here?

Normal gas in joint

15

Increased density of subchondral bone =

Subchondral sclerosis; referred to as endplate sclerosis in the spine

16

Decreased density of subchondral bone =

Periarticular osteopenia (aka juxta-articular osteopenia); referred to as endplate destruction in the spine

17

What is shown here?

Subchondral sclerosis (non-uniform with non-uniform loss of joint space)

18

Sclerotic changes (adding bone) is associated with what category of joint disease?

Degenerative

19

Taking away bone (osteopenia) is associated with what category of bone disease?

Inflammatory

20

What is shown here?

Endplate sclerosis

21

What is shown here?

Endplate sclerosis

22

What is shown here?

Periarticular osteopenia

23

What is shown here?

Endplate destruction (periarticular osteopenia in the spine)

24

What is shown here?

Subchondral cysts

25

Subchondral cysts are associated with category of joint disease?

Any of them (degenerative, inflammatory, deposition)

26

What is shown here?

Ill-defined Marginal Erosions

(Also subchondral cysts and loss of joint space)

27

Ill-defined marginal erosions are associated with what category of joint disease?

Inflammatory

28

What is shown here?

Well-defined Marginal Erosions

29

What is shown here?

Romanus lesions (marginal erosions in the spine)

30

What is shown here?

Central joint erosions
