Power Doppler sonography of synovitis: assessment of therapeutic response--preliminary observations.

Author information

Department of Radiology, University of Michigan Hospitals, Ann Arbor 48109-0326, USA.


Power Doppler sonography was used in eight symptomatic knees in seven patients with arthritis before and after joint aspiration and intraarticular administration of steroids. A qualitative decrease in synovial perfusion was observed in all eight knees, and symptoms improved in seven of the eight cases. These preliminary data suggest a role for power Doppler sonography in assessment of serial changes in synovial inflammation.
