Abstract

The classification of osteoarthritis for clinical reports or trials has only recently become of interest. The ACR criteria for the knee, hip, and hand are the only research based criteria available. Modifications of these criteria will occur with testing, newer imaging techniques, and validation of serologic and synovial markers of disease. Much work is needed on expanding the classification criteria to other joints and other aspects of the clinical disease entity.
