Introduction Rheumatoid arthritis RA is a condition characterised by synovial inflammation, joint destruction and pain. Evidence for treating rheumatoid arthritis to target: Furthermore, the study will contribute to the field within DCE-MRI by producing knowledge concerning detectable change in the inflammation load in a heterogeneous RA population as seen in daily rheumatological care, thus having a potential of generalisable interpretation.

In case of no difference, the dominant hand is chosen. When evaluating the data distributions of the continuous outcomes, we will use visual inspections of the studentised residuals to suggest whether the assumption of normality is reasonable.
