Imaging Biomarkers in Systemic Sclerosis

Objectives of the Project

SSc is a very complex disorder in which clinical manifestations appear to only represent the top of the pathophysiological iceberg. The impact of some clinical manifestations is clearly underestimated, in particular in case of musculoskeletal involvement.
The question to be addressed in this research is whether or not the activity and severity in SSc can be evaluated using objective parameters such as skin and joint assessment by ultrasound and if the activity and severity can thus be scored in an objective and feasible way.
