Dr. De Ranieri provides care to children with a wide variety of rheumatologic diseases, including Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), Lupus, Dermatomyositis, vasculitis, and others. She has a special interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK US), and how this imaging modality can be used to improve the lives of patients with JIA. MSK US assists in the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of this condition.

Performing ultrasounds and ultrasound-guided interventions (steroid injections) allows Dr. De Ranieri to care for her patients in a very comprehensive and thoughtful manner, from diagnosis through treatment.
