Yes, arthritis is diagnosed by a doctor using laboratory tests and x-rays in addition to a physical exam with a thorough medical history. Arthritis is a disease characterized by pain and inflammation in your joints that makes it difficult to move around. Joints are the points where your bones meet throughout your body, for example, your knees and elbows. X-rays can help identify arthritis because x-rays show images of the inside of your body in different shades of black and white. X-rays are a type of electromagnetic waves that are absorbed by the body, the calcium in our bones is able to absorb the most and as a result bones look white. This allows for doctors to be able to see your bones clearly and identify the inflammation that characterizes arthritis. References 1. Arthritis.
