Arthrogram

Our Imaging Services provides MRI, CT and Diagnostic Radiographic Arthrograms. An arthrogram is a procedure that the Radiologist inserts a small needle into the joint of interest and injects contrast media and/or medication. After the contrast media is injected into the joint images are taken in the appropriate modality (MRI, CT or Diagnostic Radiography).
