Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see whether power Doppler sonography (PDS) can be used to diagnose synovitis in patients with inherited bleeding disorders.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Inherited Bleeding Disorders Procedure: Power Doppler Sonography Procedure: MRI

Detailed Description:

Aim #1 - To determine if PDS can be used to diagnose synovial hypertrophy and inflammation in joint disease associated with inherited bleeding disorders. MRI will be used as a reference standard.

Aim #2 - To determine if PDS can be used to assess therapeutic response to treatment.

Aim #3 - To determine if PDS can be used as a screening tool for diagnosing early synovitis.

Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Power Doppler Sonography
    Power Doppler with gray-scale sonography is used to detect and quantify alterations in vascularity inside knee, elbow and ankle joints.
    Procedure: MRI
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging with intravenous gadolinium contrast will be done using a standardized protocol, including a spin echo T2 weighted image and gradient echo images.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and power Doppler sonograms on patients with target joint [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month ]
  2. Evaluation of PDS on patients with target joints pre and post synovectomy to assess response to therapeutic intervention [ Time Frame: 1. day of synovectomy; 2. 6 months post synovectomy. ]
  3. Evaluation of PDS on patients with at least 2 joint bleeds to diagnose early synovitis [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
