Intra-articular injection of contrast, i.e., MR Arthrography (MRA), can be very helpful. For example:
- In the shoulder, for detecting full or partial thickness tears, labral injuries (also for the hips), articular cartilage damage, loose bodies and adhesive capsulitis
- In the knee, for detecting recurrent meniscal tears, loose bodies and articular cartilage damage
- In the wrist, for detecting subtle ligamentous or triangular fibrocartilage tears MRI Arthrography of the ankle and elbow are not very helpful, except for visualizing cartilaginous injury or loose bodies.
