General Arthritis Test

Arthritis Test
  • Standard Laboratory tests — These tests include CBC test, kidney function test, urine test and liver function tests.
  • Specialized Laboratory tests — These tests include erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein levels which are used for differentiating between the inflammatory and noninflammatory causes of arthritis.
  • Antinuclear antibody — This test checks blood levels of antibodies which are present in mostly people having autoimmune disorders such as lupus and connective tissue diseases.
  • Complete blood count (CBC test) — This test counts the presence of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets in a blood. Low white blood count and low platelet count are treated with drugs; low red blood count indicates that the person is anemic. The patient’s blood is periodically tested by CBC test.
  • Urinalysis test — In this test, a urine sample is taken to test the red blood cells, white blood cells, protein and casts. This test also indicates the kidney disease which can be the cause of arthritis.
  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate — This test detects inflammation in the body. The higher rates of this test indicate the presence of inflammation which can cause the general arthritis.
  • White blood count (WBC test) — This test counts the number of white blood cells present in the blood. If the number of these cells becomes low then the person’s risk of infections is increased.
  • Arthrocentesis — This test determines the presence of bacteria, viruses or crystals in the joint. This test is done to obtain a sample of synovial fluid. This is injected into the joint with a thin and hollow needle.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computer aided tomography (CT)
  • Ultrasonography
