“In this interactive and problem-based practical session from the 2015 National Scleroderma Foundation Patient Education Conference, Dr. Jessica Gordon reviews the diagnostic testing conducted during an initial evaluation and continued follow-up of patients living with scleroderma, including general blood work, auto-antibody testing, pulmonary function testing, echocardiography, CT scans, right heart catheterizations and other studies.
She reviews the indications for testing and the various results that can be seen as well as their interpretations. The goal of this session is to empower patients so they feel comfortable obtaining and reviewing their results.
With this background, patients with scleroderma should feel more at ease understanding their disease and improving their discourse.”
