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.
