Figure 5: (A-D): Tuberculous arthritis of the right elbow. Frontal (A) and lateral (B) plain radiographs demonstrate multiple osteolytic lesions within the ulna, radius and radial condyle. Note also joint effusion with displacement of the peri-articular fat pads of the elbow (arrows). Sagittal, contrast-enhanced, fat-suppressed T1W MRI (C) shows peripheral enhancement of the synovium. Note also enhancement of the adjacent bone marrow. Sagittal, fat-suppressed T2W MRI (D) in another patient shows joint effusion and a relatively hypointense signal of the thickened synovial tissue (white arrows)
