OBJECTIVE: A systematic literature review was performed to document published magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesion definitions and scoring systems for enthesitis in spondyloarthritis (SpA).

METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for original publications involving adult patients with SpA undergoing MRI of axial/peripheral joints. Selected articles were assessed for quality using a standardized assessment tool and metric indices.

RESULTS: Considering the heterogeneous design, quality, and outcome measures of studies, statistical data pooling was considered inappropriate. A qualitative narrative of results was undertaken based on study designs.

CONCLUSION: Lack of a comprehensive, validated score warrants additional research to develop an MRI enthesitis scoring system. PROSPERO registration number: CRD42018090537.
