Knee MR Imaging of Haemarthrosis in a Case of Haemophilia A
Marc-André Weber, M.D., et al.
University Hospital Heidelberg, Germany
Imaging pediatric joints is often still a domain of x-ray and ultrasound. However, the application of MRI is of growing importance not only because of excellent soft tissue contrast and its superior capacity to visualize and evaluate the extension of involvement of soft tissues but also because of its capability to early and precisely detect bone destruction. In this case, Prof. Marc-André Weber, University of Heidelberg, Germany, reports on the imaging findings of a 14-year-old male with known haemophilia A.
