Abstract

Criteria for the classification of osteoarthritis (OA) have been developed to establish uniformity in the reporting of this disease. Different criteria sets were developed for OA of the knee, hand, and hip that can serve different investigative purposes. The use of checklists facilitates the use of the criteria sets.
