Dr Sengupta has developed the Spondyloarthritis Diagnosis Evaluation (SPADE) Tool as a diagnostic aid for healthcare professionals. The tool allows the inputting of clinical features that a patient might present with to determine the possibility of Axial Spondyloarthritis.


Spondyloarthritis database

Dr Sengupta, with JSL associates, has developed an Access based Spondyloarthritis database to capture demographics, outcome measures and treatments. He currently has 750 patients on the database and is continuing to collect data prospectively. The database is currently not available for distribution.

Talking AS

Dr Sengupta, with Abbvie Pharmaceuticals, has developed an online secure outcome measure tool that allows spondyloarthritis patients to complete the BASDAI, BASFI, Back pain VAS and WPAI questionnaires from their own home computer or mobile device. A health professional in the secure NHS system is able to retrieve these results with the patient in clinic and help plan their treatment. The tool also allows charting of previous results to enable the healthcare professional to track a patients progress over time. Further information can be found at the following website.
