It is universally accepted that effective treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) requires initiation of therapy at the early phase of articular inflammation. In addition to clinical and serological assessments, imaging of joint tissues provides useful information for the early diagnosis of RA (1). Although radiographic (X-ray) imaging can be used to detect bone erosions and to monitor disease progression in terms of bone involvement, X-ray does not detect early synovitis.
