EULAR recommendations: Imaging not required for typical presentation of OA
April 26, 2017

EULAR has published imaging recommendations for the management of patients with osteoarthritis, which stated imaging is not required for typical presentation of the disease, according to a recently published report.

Conaghan, MD, Professor of Musculoskeletal Medicine at the University of Leeds, told Healio Rheumatology. “Imaging may be required where differential diagnosis is unclear and does have a role in guiding difficult joint aspirations or in delivering more difficult joint injections, for example, in the hip.”
