Abstract

Early diagnosis and treatment improves outcomes for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Studies have shown that musculoskeletal ultrasound is more sensitive than clinical examination in identifying synovitis. This review aims to address the role of ultrasound in identifying (1) patients with early inflammatory arthritis (IA) at risk of progression to RA and (2) those without clinical synovitis at risk of progression to early IA and therefore early RA.
