Abstract

With improved diagnostic imaging techniques, radiologists are able to provide more accurate diagnoses of elbow pathology. This article will provide an overview of the imaging characteristics of some disease processes that can affect the elbow, such as trauma, athropathy, and infection. The choice of imaging modality - radiography, sanography, scintigraphy, anthrography, CT, or MRI - depends on the suspected disease process, the availabiity of advanced imaging, and the personal preferences of the radiologist.
