Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis? HSS Doctor Offers Next Step Suggestion

Paramus Daily Voice—July 26, 2016

In a recent publication of the Paramus Daily Voice, Dee Dee Wu, MD, a rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, explains what individuals need to know about rheumatoid arthritis (RA) diagnosis and treatment in a two-part series.

Dr. Wu explains in a Q&A response that "The diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is based predominantly on the presence of clinical symptoms. X-rays of affected joints may show abnormalities typical of RA, such as erosions, joint space narrowing or peri-articular osteopenia. An MRI or ultrasound can be performed to look for subtle joint inflammation or damage if x-rays are normal."
