What is an arthrogram?

Also known as: arthrography, joint X-ray

An arthrogram is an imaging test that is used to examine a joint, such as the shoulder or knee. It involves injecting a contrast dye into the joint and is usually followed by an MRI of the joint so that small structures in the joint are better seen on imaging.
