Synovial Fluid

About this test

Synovial fluid is a slippery fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage or synovia.

The joints where synovial fluid is present are known as synovial joints and include the elbow, knee, shoulder, and hip joints, among others.

Synovial fluid has a thick consistency like an egg white. It is not like most other fluids present in the body as it does not flow like a liquid. It may be more accurately described as a type of connective tissue, because of its composition and because of the work it performs.

Synovial fluid analysis may be diagnostic in patients with bacterial infections, crystal-induced synovitis, joint inflammation, pain, and/or swelling.
