POSSIBILITIESOFRADIOLOGY METHODS IN DIAGNOSTICS VERIFICATION OF EARLY RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Summary. Summary. The paper presents the possibility of diagnostic radiation in the early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.Early diagnosis and treatment have been recognized as essential forimproving clinical outcomes in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis.However, diagnosis is somewhat difficult in the early stages ofthe disease because the diagnostic criteria were developed from dataobtained in patients with established rheumatoid arthritis will writing service bexleyheath and thereforeare not readily applicable. Magnetic resonance (MR) imagingis increasingly being used in the assessment of rheumatoid arthritisdue to its capacity to help identify the key pathologic features of thisdisease entity at presentation. MR imaging has demonstrated greatersensitivity for the detection of synovitis and erosions than either clinicalexamination or conventional radiography and can help establish an early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.It also allows the detection ofbone marrow edema, which is thought to be a precursor for the developmentof erosions in early rheumatoid arthritis as well as a marker ofactive inflammation. In addition, MR imaging can help differentiaterheumatoid arthritis from some clinical subsets of peripheral spondyloarthropathiesby allowing identification of inflammation at the insertionsof ligaments and tendons (enthesitis).
