X-ray radiography is considered a very rapid and effective method for the diagnosis of arthritis, particularly in cases of bone and joint disease commonly related to rheumatology. This non-invasive procedure takes about 15 minutes and there is minimal discomfort. For your convenience, Arthritis Associates of South Florida maintains an on-site staff of experienced x-ray technicians and state-of-the-art x-ray equipment.

Digital Imaging for Rheumatoid Arthritis




Arthritis is a disease characterized by joint inflammation that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and may limit movement. A joint is anywhere in the body where two or more bones connect.

Arthritis is a progressive disease that generally develops slowly over time. It’s a common cause of chronic pain. The disease may lead to a permanent disability. Severe joint pain that comes on suddenly, or is accompanied by a fever or chills may indicate a bacterial infection. Immediate medical attention is advised.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reported that 50% of adults 65 and older, have physician-diagnosed arthritis (CDC). The disease causes inflammation of one or more joints, and may include the surrounding tissues, ligaments and muscles, as well as related joint structures.

There are over 100 different types of arthritis. The two most common types are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common (Mayo). Although there is no known cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options available for pain relief and management.

Common treatment options for arthritis sufferers include: medications, procedures and other treatments, such as physical therapy.
