Also suggested by someone in the community couple months back!

AMBOSS doesn’t directly mention either way but has highlighted in multiple of their diagnostic x-rays showing fusion of the sacroiliac joint. Not sure what to make of that

UTD says widening (grade 0-5)

Just did this question today! (QID step 1 752)

UWorld “X-ray of the sacroiliac joints may reveal erosions, sclerosis, and
narrowing; ultimately fusion of the joint spaces.”

I think we should keep and explain that UWorld actually says both?

@shmuelsash can you add more info from the QID you are referencing?

“Her pelvic x-rays show findings of sacroiliitis, including widening of the sacroiliac joint space and sclerosis of the subchondral bone. This is a characteristic presentation of ankylosing spondylitis (AS).”

UTD says either narrowing or widening under grade 4

Updated to include both narrowing and widening
