  1. *The number of AS-related changes (syndesmophytes and bridges) and degenerative changes (spondylophytes and bridges) in the spinal radiographs in those with radiographic sacroiliitis, as defined by the 45° rule. R: Right, L: Left.
  2. #Cases with spinal changes resembling DISH (a. flowing ossification extending over 4 contiguous vertebrae, b. relative preservation of intervertebral disc height in relation to age).
