Rheumatoid Arthritis Generic Joint Model
Together with detailed illustrations and easy to understand written descriptions, this model offers a comprehensive explanation of typical RA symptoms, such as inflammation, swelling, joint erosion, joint space narrowing, pannus growth, cartilaginous erosion, subchondral erosions and varied degrees of mobility. This set of four “generic joints” , or joints of unspecified origin, encompass all of the necessary structures of any joint and illustrate the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, from normal to severe. Physicians can use this model to educate their patients on the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, a disease that can affect many different joints within the body. By using an all-inclusive, non-specific model, the physician has the benefit of using the same model while customizing their explanation on a case-to-case basis.
