Could a MRI arthrogram on your shoulder hurt?

In brief: A little

Me arthrograms involve placing a small needle into the joint and injecting a contrast agent.
Typically, all you feel is a small numbing shot. About 5-10 seconds of discomfort.

In brief: Yes

But not too much.
I do thousands of arthrograms each year, and most of my patients say it is not much worse than a flu shot or venous blood draw when done by an experienced physician. Avoid residents and facilities that do a low number of these studies each year. For more information about arthrograms, google "DrNefcy.com".
