Rheumatology Diagnostic facilities
Our state-of-the-art pathology laboratory is equipped with some of the best and latest equipment for the analysis of blood samples.
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)
This test measures the speed at which the blood settles at the bottom of a test tube. The faster it settles the higher is the sign of inflammation. This is useful in assessing the level of inflammation in the body.
C-reactive protein (CRP)
This protein test measures the level of C-reactive protein in the blood. A high CRP test is a sign of acute inflammation that can be caused due to a serious infection, injury or chronic disease.
This is one of the primary tests to help in the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides (anti-CCP)
These levels mark the extent of bone damage caused due to rheumatoid arthritis.
This fluid is tested to assess the number of proteins, signs of infection and lack of thickness.
There are multiple services including x-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans to assess the condition of the joints.
