Using ultrasound to image the foot in rheumatoid arthritis: current understanding, challenges and future scope

Using ultrasound to image the foot in rheumatoid arthritis: current understanding, challenges and future scope
Using ultrasound to image the foot in rheumatoid arthritis: current understanding, challenges and future scope
Understanding of the use of diagnostic ultrasound (US) in rheumatology has grown significantly in recent years. As a result, there has been an increase in focus on the use of US techniques in the assessment and diagnosis of foot disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). There is great potential for the use of diagnostic US in aiding current assessment of RA foot disease with the ultimate outcome of more effective management of foot and ankle symptoms. In this article, the authors discuss the use of US as a key modality in the investigation of RA foot disease and highlight how advancing techniques in the use of US, which are evolving from general rheumatological practice, may be applied to RA foot disease.

Abstract

Understanding of the use of diagnostic ultrasound (US) in rheumatology has grown significantly in recent years. As a result, there has been an increase in focus on the use of US techniques in the assessment and diagnosis of foot disease associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). There is great potential for the use of diagnostic US in aiding current assessment of RA foot disease with the ultimate outcome of more effective management of foot and ankle symptoms. In this article, the authors discuss the use of US as a key modality in the investigation of RA foot disease and highlight how advancing techniques in the use of US, which are evolving from general rheumatological practice, may be applied to RA foot disease.
