Abstract

In sporadic inclusion body myositis (IBM), additional tools are needed to confirm the diagnosis, particularly in clinically atypical or pathologically unproven patients. The aims of this study were to refine the pattern of muscle MRI in IBM and to assess its accuracy in differentiating IBM frorm other myopathies that overlap with it clinically or pathologically.
