Title
Magnetic-resonance arthrography of the scapulohumeral joint in dogs, using gadopentetate dimeglumine
Author
Abstract
Six scapulohumeral joints (3 normal joints and 3 joints with radiographic evidence of osteochondrosis) underwent conventional magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and MR scapulohumeral arthrography to evaluate delineation of the articular cartilage. The MR arthrography was performed, using 5 ml of 500 mu M gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA) as a contrast medium. Delineation of normal articular cartilage and cartilage defects was less accurate after intra-articular administration of Gd-DTPA. Therefore, it was con eluded that MR arthrography with Gd-DTPA is unrewarding for evaluation of osteochondrosis lesions.
