Tuesday Tip: Romanus Lesions Anatomy of the Endplate and Enthesis

Today’s Tuesday Tip is the first in a series on Romanus Lesions jointly done with Dr Joe Thomas, starting with the anatomy of the endplate and enthesis as it relates to Romanus Lesions.

We will have more radiologists and clinicians contribute to Tuesday Tips this year, starting with Dr Joe Thomas who is a very talented Rheumatologist from Kochi India.  Joe has a great interest in Imaging of Arthropathies and will bring a clinical aspect to the imaging findings we discuss.
