Abstract

The radiographic evaluation of joint diseases in the adult hand and wrist is described in this chapter. The main focus is on the interpretation of plain radiographs of the hands and wrists in patients with joint symptoms. After considering the general approach to the analysis of the radiographs, the findings of the common forms of arthritis are illustrated and the differential diagnoses are discussed.
