X-Rays and MRIs

Is it possible for AS not to show up on x-rays and MRI's?

  1. In my experience, the answer is yes. You might look up Nonradiographic AxSpA. This type demonstrates symptoms but does not show up on X-Rays and in some cases MRI's are also negative.

    Here is an explanation, but if you look around you will see many more articles on the subject.
