El propósito de la revisión es el diagnóstico y tratamiento tempranos. Los exámenes de revisión por lo general se administran a personas sin síntomas actuales, pero que podrían estar en alto riesgo de ciertas enfermedades o condiciones.

Exámenes de Revisión

No hay exámenes de revisión disponibles para el diagnóstico temprano de artritis reumatoide. Si su médico sospecha que usted tiene artritis reumatoide, él podría revisar un nivel de proteínas anti-citrulinas en su sangre para ayudar a hacer el diagnóstico. Sin embargo, el diagnóstico de artritis reumatoide por lo general se determina clínicamente, con base en sus síntomas, resultados del laboratorio y radiográficos.
