Abstract

Many diseases are manifested by abnormalities in the sacroiliac articulations. Knowledge of the distribution of sacroiliac joint changes in these diseases is especially useful in their correct diagnosis. Furthermore, evaluation of subchondral mineralization, cystic or erosive bony change, joint space width, and the presence of osteophytes will usually limit the differential diagnosis. High quality plane radiography, polytomography, computed tomography, and radionuclide studies will allow identification of these articular changes.
