What is arthrography?

Arthrography is the x-ray examination of a joint space. During arthrography, a contrast material is injected to enable the radiologist to study the joint space that appears on the X-ray image.

Body sites often studied by the various types of arthrograms include the wrist, ankle, shoulder, and hip.
