More specifically, an MRI with dye (arthrogram
) is typically ordered, which allows for better results.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has shown variable accuracy for detecting a Stener lesion based upon Level III evidence, with some studies reporting poor specificity, sensitivity, and interobserver reliability, while others report up to 100% sensitivity and 94% specificity, especially when combined with an arthrogram
. (21,31,32) An acute Stener lesion will appear on an MRI as edema around the rupture site and an identifiable gap in the ligament, described as a "yo-yo on a string" appearance (Fig.
With the child under general anaesthetic, the surgeon will perform an arthrogram
, which is inserting a radiopaque dye into the hip joint under x-ray control and then physically manipulate the hip joint to get the ball back into the socket.
Advanced imaging with a magnetic resonance arthrogram
was available for review at the initial visit and demonstrated a pedunculated intra-articular mass in the superolateral aspect of the joint, near the femoral head-neck junction (Figure 1).
No communication between metatarsophalangeal joints III and IV was found in the arthrogram
. The metatarsophalangeal joint exhibits a mean external rotation angle of 26[degrees] relative to the sagittal plane across the running stride.
In the former, the lesioning needle is inserted into the target joint and placement confirmed with a joint arthrogram
. Conceptually, the intra-articular joint ablation leads to pain relief via destruction of articular cartilage or joint capsule innervated by sensory fibers, which serve as pain generators.

, and computed tomography following arthrography," Skeletal Radiology, vol.
is not done in our study, as it is invasive and technically demanding procedure.
A magnetic resonance arthrogram
(MRA) was requisitioned to identify the severity of damage to the glenoid labrum and to rule out any other intra-articular pathology.
We hypothesize that had this been performed as an MR arthrogram
, the presence of contrast would have been readily discerned and the initial discrepancy would have been avoided.
The trays contain essential clinical supplies needed for seven diagnostic procedures: lumbar puncture, myelogram, arthrogram
, amniocentesis, paracentesis/thoracentesis, bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, and soft tissue biopsy (custom kits can be designed for other procedures upon customer request).
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with arthrogram
can reveal a labral tear.
