Dear Ultrasound Insider,

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common inflammatory joint disease, and radiography is considered the gold standard for visualizing and quantifying it. But in an era when physicians are trying to reduce patient exposure to radiation, musculoskeletal ultrasound is being increasingly used for this application.

So how well does ultrasound perform when it comes to detecting joint erosion? French researchers say it does the job just fine -- or even better when compared with radiography, according to a new study we're highlighting in this month's Ultrasound Community. Find out more about using ultrasound to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis.

After you've read our featured story, take a look at what else is going on in the world of ultrasound.

If you have a comment or report to share about any aspect of ultrasound imaging, I invite you to contact me.
