Arthrogram - Definition

March 2017


An arthrogram is a medical technique producing imagery which highlights tissues that are invisible to radiography, notably of the joints and organs. The arthrogram works by an injection of an iodine-containing product into the joint, in order to make it appear opaque. The resulting image highlights the joint in its totality, meaning the ligaments, tendons, joint discs and cartilage, in order to detect anomalies. This technique is not recommended for pregnant women.
