ARTHRITIS

Arthritis Radiology Rheumatology Imaging

Imaging of Arthritis can be challenging because findings can be non specific and the clinical context of what we are seeing is very important in getting to or narrowing a diagnosis.

From 2021 all our posts on Arthritis Radiology and Rheumatology Imaging will be done in conjunction with Dr Joe Thomas a Senior Consultant Rheumatologist. who has a vast amount of clinical experience.

He also has a very strong interest in Imaging of Arthropathies and has joined us to bring a clinical perspective to the imaging and to advise on what rheumatologists want when we report their referrals.
