Abstract

This article focuses on measures that are used to evaluate disease activity, damage, and function in three major inflammatory musculoskeletal disorders. The instruments used in rheumatoid arthritis, where most of the methodologic work has been done, are extensively discussed and instruments for the respective domains in psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis are likewise presented.
