Wrist involvement occurs in about one-quarter of patients diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), increasing to 40% 5 years after diagnosis. The imaging appearances, both for active inflammation and permanent change, differ from those seen in adult rheumatoid arthritis; therefore, a child-specific approach is crucial for correct assessment. In this review article, we provide an update on the current status for imaging wrist JIA, with a focus on evidence-based practice.
