THE EXAM PROCESS (Specialized radiology)

Upon arrival, our staff welcomes you to check-in for your exam on the ground floor

Therapeutic arthrography or infiltrations
This exam allows injection of a drug (methylprednisolone or cortisone) and a local analgesic or viscosupplementation provided by the patient (e.g., Synvisc, Durolane) into an articulation to relieve chronic pain. A product visible to x-rays (iodine) will be injected beforehand to ensure that the correct site is infiltrated. Exam duration: 10-15 minutes.

Distensive arthrography of the shoulder
This exam allows injection of a drug (methylprednisolone or cortisone) and 10 ml of a local anesthetic in order to distend the joint capsule of the shoulder and allow you to resume normal movement. It is important to see a physiotherapist to learn which exercises to do after your exam, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. A product visible to x-rays (iodine) is will be injected into the shoulder joint beforehand. Exam duration: about 10-15 minutes.

Pre-MRI arthrography
This exam is designed to inject a product (Magnevist) that enhances magnetic resonance images. A substance visible to x-rays (iodine) will be injected into the articulation beforehand to ensure visibility of the proper area. Exam duration: 15-20 minutes.
