An arthrogram is performed by injecting contrast directly into the joint under fluoroscopy guidance to provide a clear image of the tissue in the joint and allow your physician with the images needed to make an accurate diagnosis and find out what is causing your problem. Contrast allows for clear imaging and reveals hard-to-find problems inside joints. Arthrograms can help your physician determine what is wrong in a joint such as injuries, diseases, or other problems.
When is an Arthrogram Needed?
Arthrograms can be used to diagnose problems in joints such as the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, and more. An arthrogram can help patients experiencing chronic pain, loss of motion, stiffness, or persistent pain. It may be needed if x-rays don’t effectively show the joint structure of the area that is being scanned. They can provide detailed information about what is wrong with the joints. Arthrograms can detect and diagnose problems that cause discomfort or pain in the joints.
