How do a regular hip MRI and an arthrogram of the hip differ?

The study with an arthrogram helps to better visualize the labral and articular cartilage about the hip. Along with an arthrogram, additional medication is placed into the hip joint, which can help determine if your hip pain is inside the joint and capsule or outside. ...Read more

I had an MRI of my right hip with arthrogram to diagnose labral tear and radiologist said dye went to lymph nodes quickly. Why would this happen?

Inflammation: Assuming that the arthrogram was done correctly, and contrast placed into the joint space, then heart rate and motion will not affect uptake. The contrast placed into the joint space gets absorbed by turnover of the joint fluid with uptake into the lymphatic system, and then flows into the blood vessels. Contrast outside of the joint gets absorbed directly by the blood vessels, and usually not... ...Read more
