The aim of this review is to assess the evidence for the accuracy and safety of tests to diagnose gout in patients with no prior diagnosis of gout. The review also assesses factors that affect accuracy of diagnostic tests. Tests include algorithms that combine clinical signs and symptoms, dual-energy computed tomography (DECT), ultrasound, and plain x ray, with particular emphasis on tests that can be conducted in primary and acute (urgent and emergent) care settings.

Osteoarthritis refers to a clinical syndrome of joint pain accompanied by varying degrees of functional limitation and reduced quality of life. It is the most common form of arthritis, and one of the leading causes of pain and disability worldwide. The most commonly affected peripheral joints are the knees, hips and small hand joints. Although pain, reduced function and effects on a person’s ability to carry out their day-to-day activities can be important consequences of osteoarthritis, pain in itself is of course a complex biopsychosocial issue, related in part to person expectations and self-efficacy, and associated with changes in mood, sleep and coping abilities. There is often a poor link between changes on an X-ray and symptoms: minimal changes can be associated with a lot of pain and modest structural changes to joints oftencan occur without with minimal accompanying symptoms. Contrary to popular belief, osteoarthritis is not caused by ageing and does not necessarily deteriorate. There are a number of management and treatment options (both pharmacological and non-pharmacological), which this guideline addresses and which offer effective interventions for control of symptoms and improving function.

The study found that the 10 g monofilament test most consistently identifies those people with diabetes who are at risk of foot ulceration, regardless of if they are at low, moderate or high risk of ulceration. An inability to feel a 10 g monofilament appears to be at least as predictive as the groups of tests currently recommended in national and international clinical guidelines.
