Result
 
Important: Inputs must be complete to perform calculation.

 
 
CDAI  
 
Decimal precision  

 

 

CDAI interpretation

 
CDAI ≤2.8: Remission
CDAI >2.8 and ≤10: Low disease activity
CDAI >10 and ≤22: Moderate disease activity
CDAI >22: High disease activity

 
 

 
Notes
  • In the hands, the joints that are evaluated include the 1st through 5th MCP, the IP of the thumb, and the 2nd through 5th PIP.
  • The PGA estimate represents the patient's self-assessment of disease activity on a 0 to 10 scale where 10 means maximal activity.
  • The EGA estimate represents the evaluator's assessment of disease activity on a 0 to 10 scale where 10 means maximal activity.
  • A CDAI reduction by 6.5 represents a moderate improvement.
  • PGA: Patient Global disease Activity; EGA: Evaluator Global disease Activity; TJC: tender joint count; SJC: swollen joint count; IP: interphalangeal joint; MCP: metacarpophalangeal joint; PIP: proximal interphalangeal joint.

 
Equations used
 
CDAI = SJC + TJC + PGA + EGA

 

 
Only digits 0 to 9 and a single decimal point (".") are acceptable as numeric inputs. Attempted input of other characters into a numeric field may lead to an incorrect result.
