Other Diagnostic Tests and Assessments

• Radiograph (x-ray): Evaluate bony structures to rule out fracture, malalignment, or joint erosion as the primary cause of pain.

• MRI: Soft-tissue imaging to evaluate for tendon or ligament tears.

• Ultrasound: Superficial soft-tissue imaging to evaluate for tears in tendons or ligaments. Ultrasound does not penetrate bone, so it is of limited usefulness for assessing tendons or ligaments deep within joints.

• Pain scale: Patient self-rating of pain on a scale of zero (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain). Used to assess pain both at rest and with movement. Determined at baseline and to assess response to therapy.
