Conclusion

We developed two new ultrasound composite scores for PsA. Both scores include most PsA-specific pathologies, are sensitive for the detection of inflammation, have adequate convergent construct validity, are reliable and feasible in clinical practice and inflammatory elements of the scores reveal sufficient sensitivity to change.
