Screening for Osteoarthritis

The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.

There are no screening tests available for osteoarthritis (OA). An assessment of your risk of OA may be done during regular physical exams.
