About This CME Teaching Activity
Spondyloarthritis (SpA) is an under recognized condition that can be a challenge to diagnose. This CME activity is designed to emphasize the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of spondyloarthritis. Faculty stress the important role of imaging in the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of SpA by describing image features and subtleties used to differentiate the spectrum of disease states.
