How is psoriatic arthritis diagnosed?

ANSWER

To diagnose psoriatic arthritis, your doctor will ask about your symptoms. Your doctor will also have you tell him or her about your medical history and your family’s. Blood tests, imaging, and other tests can help your doctor rule out other forms of arthritis that look similar.
