ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To develop evidence-based recommendations on the use of ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging in patients with spondyloarthritis, including psoriatic arthritis, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. METHODS: Recommendations were generated following a nominal group technique. A panel of experts (15 rheumatologists and 3 radiologists) was established in the first panel meeting to define the scope and purpose of the consensus document, as well as chapters, potential recommendations and systematic literature reviews (we used and updated those from previous EULAR documents). A first draft of recommendations and text was generated. Then, an electronic Delphi process (2 rounds) was carried out. Recommendations were voted from 1 (total disagreement) to 10 (total agreement). We defined agreement if at least 70% of participants voted≥7. The level of evidence and grade or recommendation was assessed using the Oxford Centre for Evidence Based Medicine levels of evidence. The full text was circulated and reviewed by the panel. The consensus was coordinated by an expert methodologist. RESULTS: A total of 12 recommendations were proposed for each disease. They include, along with explanations of the validity of US and magnetic resonance imaging regarding inflammation and damage detection, diagnosis, prediction (structural damage progression, flare, treatment response, etc.), monitoring and the use of US guided injections/biopsies. CONCLUSIONS: These recommendations will help clinicians use US and magnetic resonance imaging in patients with spondyloarthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

2 Article A multicentre study on high-frequency ultrasound evaluation of the skin and joints in patients with psoriatic arthritis treated with infliximab. 2012

De Agustín, Juan José / Moragues, Carmen / De Miguel, Eugenio / Möller, Ingrid / Acebes, Carlos / Naredo, Esperanza / Uson, Jacqueline / Rejon, Eduardo / Mayordomo, Lucia / Garrido, Jesus. ·Reumatology Unit, Hospital General Vall d'Hebrón, Barcelona, Spain. jjagor@hotmail.com ·Clin Exp Rheumatol · Pubmed #23020866.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to describe the ultrasound features of patients with PsA in joints and skin and their changes after treatment with infliximab. METHODS: Eight hospitals recruited PsA active patients. Clinical (joint count for pain, TJC, and swelling, SJC, pain VAS, ESR, C-reactive protein and PASI) and US variables (plaque thickness, PD signal of dermal lesions, synovitis, erosions, and PD signal, assessed by 4-category ordinal scales) were independently recorded at baseline and 4, 12 and 24-week after starting treatment with infliximab. The results were analysed with paired T, Wilcoxon test, ANOVA and marginal homogeneity test. RESULTS: Changes in 24 patients from baseline to last available data were significant for clinical variables, pain VAS, TJC and SJC as well as for ESR, CRP (all p<0.0005). Dermatological PASI changed from 14.6±14.9 to 2.1±4.1 and plaque thickness from 3.34±1.75 mm to 1.74±0.96 mm (both p<0.0005); synovitis and PD signal improved (both p<0.0005). Psoriatic plaque PD improved across the study (p<0.0005) with no signal increasing from 36.4% to 88.9% and positive PD signal decreasing from 63.6% to 11.1% of the plaques. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with anti-TNF-α infliximab improves the symptoms of patients with PsA at joint and psoriatic skin levels from a clinical and ultrasonographic perspective.

3 Article High prevalence of ultrasonographic synovitis and enthesopathy in patients with psoriasis without psoriatic arthritis: a prospective case-control study. 2011

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To investigate the presence of synovitis, tenosynovitis and enthesitis with power Doppler (PD) ultrasonography (US) in patients with psoriasis without musculoskeletal diseases as compared with controls with other skin diseases without musculoskeletal disorders. METHODS: A total of 162 patients with plaque psoriasis and 60 age-matched controls with other skin diseases, all without musculoskeletal diseases, were prospectively recruited at 14 centres. They underwent dermatological and rheumatological assessment and a blinded PDUS evaluation. Clinical assessment included demographics, comorbidities, severity of psoriasis, work and sport activities and musculoskeletal clinical examination. PDUS evaluation consisted of the detection of grey scale (GS) synovitis and synovial PD signal in 36 joints, GS tenosynovitis and tenosynovial PD signal at 22 sites, and GS enthesopathy and entheseal PD signal in 18 entheses. RESULTS: US synovitis and enthesopathy were significantly more frequent in psoriatic patients than in controls (P = 0.024 and 0.005, respectively). The percentage of joints with US synovitis was 3.2% in the psoriasis group and 1.3% in the control group (P < 0.0005). US enthesopathy was present in 11.6% of entheses in the psoriasis group and 5.3% of entheses in the control group (P < 0.0005). Entheseal PD signal was found in 10 (7.4%) psoriatic patients, whereas no controls showed this finding (P = 0.05). Among demographic and clinical data, having psoriasis was the only significant predictive variable of the presence of US synovitis [odds ratio (OR) 2.1; P = 0.007] and enthesopathy (OR 2.6; P = 0.027). CONCLUSION: Psoriatic patients showed a significant prevalence of asymptomatic US synovitis and enthesopathy, which may indicate a subclinical musculoskeletal involvement.
