All patients with wrist joint pain examined by the orthopedic OPD & IPD and referred to the dept. of radio-diagnosis.
Result: Cross sectional statistical analysis of ultrasound findings of affected wrist joint of study subjects based on numbers and percentages from table, reveals 98% of subjects had no joint involvement and the rest 2% of subjects had joint involvement. The frequency of case detection from USG was more 124(62%) compared to X- Ray 18(9%), the difference was found to be statistically significant (P =.00001).
Conclusion: US is an useful instrument to complement the physical examination of RA patients. The method is quick and safe. The GS/pD scales are helpful to detect early synovitis and US is also sensitive in the identification of bone erosions in rheumatoid arthritis. US imaging can be considered superior to X-rays in the diagnosis of non traumatic wrist joint pain.
