About This CME Teaching Activity
Spondyloarthritis (SpA) is an under recognized condition that can be a challenge to diagnose. This CME activity is designed to emphasize the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of spondyloarthritis. Faculty stress the important role of imaging in the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of SpA by describing image features and subtleties used to differentiate the spectrum of disease states.
Target Audience
Radiologists, Rheumatologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Chiropractors, Sports Medicine and Primary Care Physicians.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Review epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, and diagnostic criteria of spondyloarthritis (SpA), mainly Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) and Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS).
  • Discuss radiographic features of SpA: axial and peripheral.
  • Recognize the indications for MRI in SpA and discuss the MRI features of SpA in peripheral disease, sacroiliac joints and the spine.
  • Review ultrasound findings in SpA patients.
  • Discuss the use of CT, scintigraphy and other imaging techniques in SpA.
  • Review literature evaluating the use of imaging in SpA.
