Core Tip Over the last decade, ultrasound (US) has become a practical imaging tool for the assessment of articular and periarticular pathologies in rheumatic diseases. Progress in power Doppler (PD) technology has enabled evaluation of the strength of ongoing inflammation. PDUS is useful not only for identifying the pathologies in rheumatic ankles, but also for distinguishing between inflammatory processes and degenerative changes or between active inflammation and residual damage. The aim of this paper is to illustrate the US assessment of ankle lesions in patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis, focusing on the utility of PDUS.
