A CT arthrogram is a two-part procedure performed to aid in the diagnosis of subtle abnormalities in the joints of the extremities, including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle.
Nothing to eat or drink 3 hours prior to your exam.
A CT arthrogram typically takes about an hour: 30 minutes for the injection and 30-45 minutes for the CT scan.
During the first part of a CT arthrogram, contrast is injected into the joint space under x-ray guidance. The contrast material serves to illuminate the joint space during imaging.
The second part of a CT arthrogram is to capture images of the joint.
Your images will be interpreted by one of our board-certified radiologists. The findings will be sent to your healthcare provider who will then contact you to discuss the results.
