Evolution of the imaging tests in hemophilia with emphasis on radiography and magnetic resonance imaging

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragÖversiktsartikel


Even before the discovery of X-rays in 1895 attempts were being made to classify the joint destruction that occurs in hemophilic arthropathy. The advent of radiography added impetus to the search for the optimum classification system. Subsequent attempts have included advanced imaging methods, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because of its high spatial resolution and ability to Visualize soft tissue abnormalities, MRI is ideally suited as the best way to classify arthropathy. A literature search was carried out to document and list all the imaging methods for hemophilic arthropathy that have been published Lip to the present. All published classification systems are discussed and listed in tables. MRI has superior imaging capability and will probably become the most important modality for radiological classification of hernophilic arthropathy in the future.
