Evaluations of radiological changes in rheumatic diseases are subject to great inconsistency. In this study, digital image analysis is shown to be a promising tool in the evaluation of joint space narrowing. The repeatability of the measurements is shown to be better than that of manual methods and is also less dependent on the observer.
