Towards Detection of Subclinical Joint Bleeds in Hemophiliacs: Advanced Imaging

This project aims to assess how the use of the novel “ultra-short echo-time” (UTE) MR imaging technology can “add value to” conventional MRI for detection and quantification of blood products in hemophilic joints. We will test this novel technology in joints of hemophilic patients with different stages of arthropathy presenting with blood products at different stages of degradation as compared with existing MRI sequences.
