A timely and accurate diagnosis of joint pain is critical to the development of a patient treatment plan. Typically, numerous diagnostic test results are obtained to give input into the decision process including blood and synovial fluid tests.
At CD Laboratories, we focus on synovial fluid tests to aid in the infection and arthritis diagnosis including (Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI), Native Septic Arthritis (NSA), Osteoarthritis (OA), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Crystal Arthritis. We offer comprehensive test panels that bring together proprietary and standard of care (SoC) tests to give a more complete view of the cause of a patient’s pain. In cases of PJI, the comprehensive test panel offers results necessary to fulfill the 2018 International Consensus Meeting (ICM) diagnosis criteria. To learn more about the criteria, click here.
