Although most tools used in gout research are generic, there are some important gout-specific instruments. New gout classification criteria were published in 2015. Outcome measure domains have been identified for both acute and chronic gout studies. A preliminary flare definition has been reported. Gout-specific, patient-reported outcome measure instruments allow assessment of gout disease activity and impact of tophi. Imaging scoring systems allow quantification of joint damage, inflammation, and urate burden in gout.
