An MRI arthrography is performed by placing a small needle into the joint space, and injecting some contrast material. Once the contrast material is in the joint space, an MRI is performed to evaluate the knee, shoulder, hip, wrist, ankle, or other joint.
Joints are made up of two bones that are close together. Cartilage, tendons and ligaments are tissues that cushion and support the joints. MRI arthrography helps to see tears or other problems in these joint tissues.
Call your doctor immediately if your pain and swelling does not go away or if you have a fever.
