The new laser-based imaging technique allows the transillumination of PIP joints and gives information about the inflammatory status of the joint after processing through a neural network. Our data indicate that laser imaging may provide additional information in the early diagnosis of an inflammatory joint process and may prove particularly useful in assessing acute joint inflammation at followup.
