Retrospectively, 4 CT signs have been highlighted as follows (Table 1): fat infiltration in front of the sacroiliac joint in 86% of the cases, anterior bulging capsule in 43% of the cases, piriformis muscle swelling in 71% of the cases, and iliac muscle swelling in 71% of the cases (Figure 1, 2).
They appear as linear low signal intensity lesions on T1-weighted sequences which typically parallel the sacroiliac joints and are surrounded by extensive bone marrow edema on fluid sensitive sequences (Fig.
The associated Low back pain can have multiple differential diagnosis such as Radiculopathy, Prolapsed disc, lateral canal stenosis, Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, myofascial pain syndrome, piriformis syndrome and so on.
On blinded MRI assessment, five (25%) patients with skin psoriasis and two (9.1%) controls were classified as having inflammation of the sacroiliac joint.
Conclusion: Pain relief score was found to be statistically significant in fluoroscopic guided intra-articular technique as compared to peri-articular landmark technique for sacroiliac joint pain syndrome at 12 weeks post procedure.
Despite previous efforts to describe the symptomology and clinical presentation of sacroiliac TB, no specific mention is given to its manifestation in athletes.

A T1-weighted fat-suppressed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of the sacroiliac joints indicated joint space narrowing, bone erosions, subchondral sclerosis, and cortical irregularities in joint margins, indicating chronic damage and contrast agent uptake, both intra-articular and in the subchondral bone marrow, which is favorable for acute sacroiliitis (Figure 1).
