Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
Cross-sectional imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound are becoming essential tools not only for making an early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, but also to help clarify the prognosis of the disease and better assess the response to various therapies. This article summarises the recommendations established in 2013 by the European League Against Rheumatism on the role of imaging in the diagnosis and follow-up of rheumatoid arthritis, while adding comments and emphasising on our Swiss experience with the use of ultrasound.
