Atlas Guide

How to use RheumExam Atlas

The search function can be used to locate particular physical findings, e.g. “knee effusion” or “vasculitis”.

Self-Study Format

The atlas can be used in self-study format – view the pictures, try to describe what is seen, and then click on the picture to get explanatory text.


Clinical teachers can use the pictures to support teaching at the bedside, to demonstrate findings that may be relevant, but not seen in a particular patient.
