Synovial fluid analysis

Synovial fluid analysis: A synovial fluid analysis involves removing synovial fluid from the joint space by needle aspiration (arthrocentesis); the fluid is evaluated visually, chemically (e.g. clot formation), and microscopically for (urate) crystals and certain types of blood cells (which are normally not present or at very low levels). Cultures may also be performed to test for bacterial or fungal infections.
