An arthrogram is an X-ray of the joint space of the knee.

Contrast material is injected into the knee cavity, and appears white on X-ray. It is usually injected under pressure, to expand the knee cavity.

Air may also be introduced instead of contrast material, and this may demonstrate soft tissues that may otherwise be difficult to visualise (eg. a plica).
