Volumes/measurements of tophi determined by serial MRIs
Subjects underwent MRI to evaluate tophi.
- Measurement of Tophi by MRI - Difference in Volument Between Visits [ Time Frame: Visit 1 (Day 1) and Visit 2 (Days 6-11) ]Two independent readers determined volume of the same tophus by MRI at 2 separate visits scheduled no more than 10 days apart. Difference in volume between Visit 1 and 2 for the same tophus was pooled across readers.
- Measurement of Tophi by MRI - Difference in Volume Between Readers [ Time Frame: Visit 1 (Day 1) and Visit 2 (Days 6-11) ]Two independent readers determined volume of the same tophus by MRI at 2 separate visits scheduled no more than 10 days apart. Difference in Reader 2 volume and Reader 1 volume for the same tophus were pooled across visits.
Biospecimen Retention: None Retained
