What is an arthrogram x-ray?

A Answers (1)

  • An arthrogram is a special kind of x-ray of a joint, usually a hip, shoulder, or wrist. During the procedure, a contrast material (also called dye) is injected into the joint. The contrast material is visible on the x-ray image and helps the radiologist and your doctor to recognize specific abnormalities (or to confirm the absence of abnormalities).
