OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate an enthesitis magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scoring system for spondyloarthritis/psoriatic arthritis, using the heel as model.

METHODS: Consensus definitions of key pathologies and 3 heel enthesitis multireader scoring exercises were done, separated by discussion, training, and calibration.

RESULTS: Definitions for bone and soft tissue pathologies were agreed. In the final exercise, median pairwise single-measures intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC; patient-level) for entheseal inflammation status/change scores were 0.83/0.82 for all readers. For radiologists and selected rheumatologists, ICC were 0.91/0.84 and quadratic-weighted κ (lesion-level) 0.57-0.91/0.45-0.81.

CONCLUSION: The proposed definitions and Heel Enthesitis Scoring System (HEMRIS) are reliable among trained readers and promising for clinical trials.
