Marginal erosions progressing to severe erosions of subchondral bone 6. Synvovial cyst formation 7. Subluxations 8. Bilateral symmetrical distribution 9. Distribution in hands, feet, knee, hips, cspine, shoulders, and elbow in decreasing frequency  Common radiographic findings of Psoriatic arthritis 1. Fusiform STS 2. Maintaienance of normal mineralization 3. Dramatic joint space loss 4. Bone proliferation 5. "penicil in cup" 6. Bilateral aymmetrical distribution 7. Distribution primarily in hands, feet, SI joints, and spine, in decreasing freqency  Common radiographic findings of Reiters disease 1. Fusiform STS 2. Early juxtarticular osteoporosis, reestablishment of normal mineralization 3. Uniform joint space loss 4. Bone proliferation 5. Ill defined erosions 6. Bilateral asymmetrical distribution 7. Distribution in feet, ankles, knees, and SI joints; hands, hips, and spine less frequently involved  Common radiographic findings of Ankylosing spondylitis 1. Normal mineralization before ankylosis, generalized osteoporosis after 2. Subchonral bone formation present before ankylosis 3. Erosions- small, localized, and not a prominent part of the picture 4. Absence of subluxations 5. absence of cysts 6. Ankylosis 7. Bilateral symmetrical distribution 8. Distribution in SI joints and the spine(ascending from L to C spine); then hips shoulders, knees, hands, and feet in decreasing frequency
