Abstract Purpose To describe the imaging, anatomic, and clinical features of a series of secondary aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC) and to ascertain their most commonly associated primary bone lesions. Methods Forty-nine cases of histopathologically proven secondary ABCs were retrospectively reviewed. Demographic data and clinical history were obtained. Radiographic, computed tomographic, magnetic resonance, and nuclear medicine imaging were analyzed. Lesion location, imaging characteristics, and ass...

Abstract Purpose In adults with long-term HIV infection, low bone density and increased fracture risk have emerged as significant comorbidities. Our aim was to assess the association of exercise, nutrition, and medications with bone quality in adults with long-term HIV infection. Methods Forty-three adults with HIV infection were enrolled (median BMI 25.7, range 18.2–35.6 kg/m2; median age 57, range 50–69 years). Participants underwent ultradistal radius and tibia high-resolution peripheral quan...

To investigate the associations of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) with changes in knee cartilage composition and joint structure over 48 months, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI). A total of 1126 participants with right knee Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) score 0–2 at baseline, no history of rheumatoid arthritis, blood pressure measurements at baseline, and cartilage T2 measurements at baseline and 48 months were select...

Summary Objective To determine if presence of calcium-containing crystals (CaC) is associated with increased knee joint degeneration over four years and assess if total number of CaCs deposited is a useful measure of disease burden. Design Seventy subjects with CaCs in right knees at baseline were selected from the Osteoarthritis Initiative and matched to 70 subjects without evidence of CaCs. T1-weighted gradient-echo sequences were used to confirm presence of CaCs and count the numbers of disti...

Abstract Purpose To assess diagnostic performance of CT-guided percutaneous needle bone biopsy (CTNBB) in patients with suspected osteomyelitis and analyze whether certain clinical or technical factors were associated with positive microbiology results. Materials and Methods All CTNBBs performed in a single center for suspected osteomyelitis of the appendicular and axial skeleton during 2003–2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Specific inclusion criteria were clinical and radiologic suspicion of...

The objectives of the study are (1) to distinguish lipoma (L) from atypical lipomatous tumor (ALT) using MRI qualitative features, (2) to assess the value of contrast enhancement, and (3) to evaluate the reproducibility and confidence level of radiological readings. Patients with pathologically proven L or ALT, who underwent MRI within 3 months from surgical excision were included in this retrospective multicenter international study. Two radiologists independently reviewed MRI centrally. Impres...

Summary Objective To evaluate the degree of knee fat pad abnormalities after acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear via magnetic resonance fat pad scoring and to assess cross-sectionally its association with synovial fluid biomarkers and with early cartilage damage as quantified via T1ρ and T2 relaxation time measurements. Design 26 patients with acute ACL tears underwent 3T MR scanning of the injured knee prior to ACL reconstruction. The presence and degree of abnormalities of the infrapat...

This chapter provides an overview of techniques to measure bone mass and structure as well as techniques to measure vertebral deformity. The current standard technique to measure bone mass is dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), which allows to classify bone mineral density as normal, osteopenic, and osteoporotic using so-called T-scores. It also allows to sensitively monitor therapy. An alternative technique is quantitative CT (QCT) which is substantially less frequently used but provides volumetri...
