Chapter 103 describes the indications, technique, and imaging findings of ankle arthrography. Ankle arthrography is selectively performed in clinical practice for MRA. It is typically performed in younger patients. The main indication is the evaluation of the talar dome for stability of osteochondral lesions. Contrast undermines the unstable osteochondral lesions. Extravasation of the contrast through the lateral or medial joint capsule is consistent with ligamentous tear. Filling defects within the intraarticular contrast relate to joint bodies or synovitis. Complications are rare but can include infection, bleeding, and nerve injury.
