Arthrography is a diagnostic study of the joint structures within the body that uses contrast to evaluate the joint structure. An arthrogram is sometimes performed as a sole diagnostic test. If the site and nature of the injury are clearly apparent, the diagnostic process may stop here. In other cases, arthrography can be the first phase of a diagnostic process that also includes CT or MRI scans.
