German researchers found that a new imaging technique called fluorescence optical imaging yielded similar efficacy in monitoring treatment response in juvenile idiopathic arthritis and better detection of joint inflammation in asymptomatic children, compared with ultrasound with power Doppler and clinical examination. The findings, presented at the European Congress of Rheumatology, suggest the approach "may be used in clinical practice to accurately identify joint inflammation earlier and with greater confidence," said researcher Gerd Horneff.
