What Is A MR Arthrogram?

An MR Arthrogram is an imaging technique that utilizes MRI equipment and a fluoroscopy to provide an in-depth look at the structures of joints. Certain joint tears and injuries can be difficult to diagnose due to the uncertainty of the size of an injury and how it occurred in the joint. MR arthrograms help provide a proper diagnosis of unexplainable joint pain a lot quicker than conventional MRI scans or X-rays.

What Does A MR Arthrogram Detect?

An MR arthrogram is the preferred imaging technique used to detect issues with joints and ligaments. An MR arthrogram is commonly used to diagnose unexplainable pain in shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and other joints. If you suspect ligament damage or various joint tears, an MR arthrogram is preferred.

How Do I Prepare For An MR Arthrogram?

An MR arthrogram requires no special preparation. You are allowed to eat and drink before your appointment. Medications may continue to be taken unless instructed otherwise by your referring physician. If you have any questions, reach out to your referring physician or our team at SJRA here.
