What is an MRI Shoulder Arthrogram?
An MRI shoulder arthrogram will give a high-quality image of the inside of the shoulder joint that will assess cartilage and ligaments. Prior to the exam, one of our radiologists will inject contrast and anesthetic into your shoulder. This will aid in providing a higher-quality image of inside the joint.
When a shoulder MRI is combined with a joint injection (an arthrogram) this makes the test even better, especially for assessment of cartilage and ligaments.
