How is an Arthrogram different from a regular MRI?
A common question asked is “What is an arthrogram”. This examination will enable your doctor to better visualize a joint in your body, more than a routine MRI. A MRI arthrogram is a radiographic procedure in which a radiologist injects contrast material into the joint before the MRI exam is completed.
You may not be able to have an MRI if you have one of the following:
• Cardiac pacemaker
• Cerebral aneurysm clip
• Metallic implants
• Cochlear implants
• Metal fragments in your eye or other parts of your body
• Prosthetic implants
• Women who are pregnant
