In brief: Multiple tests

The tests available are dependent on the conditions at hand.
First and foremost a comprehensive history and physical exam is needed to identify the problem and direct the appropriate testing. Most commonly, x-ray, ct scan, mri, and diagnostic ultrasound are used for additional diagnosis. Certain blood tests can screen for systemic arthritic conditions.
