Arthography is a procedure used to evaluate the function of the joints, which include the shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and elbow. It is a diagnostic procedure, but performed under imaging guidance by an interventional radiologist.

Arthrography is generally performed on an outpatient basis, using fluoroscopy or MRI for guidance, while a contrast material is injected into the joint space. The patient will then be asked to move the affected joint while the radiologist evaluates the joint motion and determines the nature of the problem.
