Looking at Dupuytren’s with MRI
By: Charles Eaton
Nov 29, 2009

Where is Dupuytren’s? It’s been known for some time that Dupuytren’s involvement can be identified by MRI, as described in these articles:
http://www.dupuytrenfoundation.org/DupPDFs/1993_Yacoe_813.pdf
http://www.dupuytrenfoundation.org/DupPDFs/1994_Miller.pdf
and it’s likely that the activity of the process could be mapped, both for predictive value and for targeted treatment to prevent progression. Now, these papers are 15 years old – it’s time to revisit this with more up-to-date imaging technology to look again at the usefulness of MRI and Dupuytren’s in a longitudinal study – might make a nice PhD thesis…
