Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Asymptomatic Patients With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) may progress asymptomatically leading to joint destruction despite treatment.
The aim of the observational study is to describe patients with silent arthritis comparing symptoms, clinical findings with results of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Diagnostic Value of MRI and Ultrasound in Patients With JIA|
- Definition of patients with silent arthritis. [ Time Frame: every three to six months from recruitment to end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Comparison of diagnostic value of MRI and ultrasound. [ Time Frame: every three to six months from recruitment to end of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||May 2008|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||June 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
