AbstractThe present study demonstrates the application of infrared spectroscopy to the diagnosis of arthritic conditions by analysis of joint fluids. The detection of carbon dioxide clathrates, their origin and the nature of the host material is discussed. The analytical sensitivity of mid IR second derivative spectra is demonstrated with the detection of the local anaesthetic lidocaine in some of the samples. Linear discriminant analysis and hierarchical clustering are successfully used to classify the spectra according to their respective clinical diagnosis.
