Computer-based methods for measuring joint space and estimating erosion volume in the finger and wrist joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE This study was conducted 1) to determine the feasibility of using computer programs to measure radiographic joint space width and estimate erosion volume in the hands of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and 2) to compare the new computer-based methods with established scoring methods. METHODS To measure the joint space width in the… (More)
