Abstract

Alongside recent advances in treatment strategies for juvenile idiopathic arthritis management of JIA patients and to describe the state-of-the-art validation process of imaging as an outcome measure. A closer collaboration between radiologists and pediatric rheumatologists is crucial to define a scheduled (JIA), paediatric rheumatologists have taken increasing interest in the use of imaging. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and musculoskeletal ultrasound, by providing more detailed information on disease activity than clinical examination and conventional radiography (CR), have become helpful diagnostic and managerial tools. The growing skeleton, however, with changing appearances over time, is still challenging in the establishment of valid scoring systems for pathological changes. Defining child- and age-specific reference standards is therefore a highly prioritized issue. The aim of this article is to raise awareness among radiologists of the substantial role that imaging can play to optimize the workflow for imaging in JIA.
