An arthrogram studies specific joints of the body and any abnormalities associated in those joints.
Your doctor or the radiologist may conduct your Arthrogram.
Upon arriving in radiology, you will be asked to change into a hospital gown and to lie on an examination table. The doctor will inject contrast directly into the joint. The contrast allows the doctor to see the soft tissues of the joint that aren't normally seen on images. You will then be taken to have an MRI.
After the procedure, you may experience soreness at the injection site but you should be able to continue with your normal routine.
