Rheumatic diseases are sometimes complex and challenging to diagnose. So, a rheumatologist will gather a complete medical history and perform a physical exam to look for signs and symptoms that may give clues to the cause of the problem.
The rheumatologist may order additional laboratory tests, imaging studies (X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI), or other tests to assess for additional potential clues to the possible cause of your musculoskeletal problem.
All of these results will be combined to determine the source of a patient’s symptoms and develop a personalized treatment plan. Treatment recommendations may include medications, referral to physical or occupational therapy, referral to other specialists, or to perform joint/tendon injections.
The HICSS Rheumatology module supports this speciality of medicine and provides a platform to manage the patient care plan.
