Objectives: To assess the role of whole-body MRI in the diagnosis and management of chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) is a benign and non-infective auto-inflammatory bone disorder characterised by multiple and recurrent inflammatory bone lesions. No universal diagnostic criteria exist.Methods: Retrospective review of CRMO cases diagnosed at this hospital between 2008 and 2014. Cases were identified from patient records and clinical inform...

Objectives: The main aim of the study is to describe a new method of quantitative, MRI-based assessment of inflammation in children with chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO).General hypothesis: The main hypothesis is that the bone marrow edema, as detected in CRMO with MRI, can be quantified to aid early diagnosis and help identify clinically silent lesions.Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of static MRI s...
