The purposes of this study are to use T2 mapping to assess AS activity, to compare the quantitative assessment values of T2 mapping and DWI for subchondral bone marrow edema of the sacroiliac joint, and to provide potential imaging technical support for the clinical diagnosis of AS and efficacy evaluations of AS treatments.
