Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To add to the general knowledge of the researchers and to possibly benefit future patients in the diagnosis and treatment of joint abnormalities. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: September 2004
Study Completion Date: November 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ultrasound Pre-Arthrogram
Ultrasound of the joint(s) before the clinically scheduled arthrogram of the same joint(s)
Procedure: Ultrasound
Ultrasound of the joint(s) before the clinically scheduled arthrogram of the same joint(s)
Experimental: Ultrasound Post-Arthrogram
Ultrasound of the joint(s) after the clinically scheduled arthrogram of the same joint(s), performed while the body still has a contrast agent in it from the arthrogram. The contrast agent varies with different joint areas, but is usually iodine based (like Ultravist.)
Procedure: Ultrasound
Ultrasound of the joint(s) after a clinically scheduled arthrogram is performed. Ultrasound images will then be compared to the arthrogram findings, other imaging findings such as MRI and surgical pathological findings such as arthroscopy (if any.)

Detailed Description:
To determine if using intra-articular contrast (contrast injected into a joint) will provide clearer, more precise ultrasound images of the joints then an ultrasound done without the use of a contrast agent.
