Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram
What is a Magnetic Resonance (MR) Arthrogram?
An MR Arthrogram is a combination of an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to generate detailed images of the joints, and an Arthrogram, a procedure in which contrast agents are injected into to the joints to get a better image of what is happening inside of them.
This two-part exam shows more details of your joint than an MRI by itself, including any possible tears in cartilage, tendons or ligaments. The results of this test will assist your physician in the determination of the cause of any pain or discomfort you may be having and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
