Diagnosis for Rheumatic Disorders

Musculoskeletal ultrasonography has become an important diagnostic tool in rheumatoid arthritis. In Germany it is part of the rheumatology training, and many ultrasound courses provide further education. Only in the last five years the international importance of ultrasound in rheumatology has increased dramatically. Sonography can be performed as a bedside procedure and as an extension of the clinical investigation.  It is easily tolerated by the patients, and it can be repeated any time. Schober's test is a test used in rheumatology to measure the ability of a patient to flex his/her lowers back. The purpose of the Schober test is to reflect the lumbar ROM during flexion. An Arthrogram is a diagnostic test which examines the inside of a joint to assess an injury or a symptom you may be experiencing. The test is done by first injecting contrast which outlines the soft tissue structures in the joint (e.g. ligaments and cartilage) and makes them clearer to see on the images or pictures that will be taken of the joint. This is usually done using fluoroscopy. 

Various other tools and techniques available such as cytopathology and chemical pathology, MR Arthrography, low bone marrow density and its relation with the disease, sonography and disease activity measurements in rheumatoid arthritis will be discussed under this track.
