These include barium tests, spinal injections, contrast-enhanced examinations of the joints (arthrography and sometimes simultaneously combined with MRI), urodynamics - bladder function tests, gastric band screening and examinations to detect fertility problems.
Computed tomographic arthrography (CTR) was recently described as an imaging technique that uses intraarticular administration of contrast to improve visualization of the intrasynovial and perisynovial soft tissues [7, 9].
