Positive contrast arthrography a study of the humeral joints in normal beagle dogs



Positive contrast arthrography a study of the humeral joints in normal beagle dogs



Veterinary Radiology 29(4): 157-161



Normal colony Beagle dogs were used to evaluate the effect of concentration, volume, and limb positioning on positive-contrast arthrography in the humeral joint. An 8.4% w/v (33.3 mg/ml .+-. volume) concentration of analytic grade metrizamide (33 mg/ml of iodine) was thought to provide arthrograms of the highest diagnostic quality. Optimal volume of contrast medium was 2-4 ml in dogs with weight of 7.0-15.6 kg (mean, 10.3 kg). Radiographs thought to be of greatest diagnostic value were those made with the dog in lateral recumbency and the limb positioned for neutral, traction, flexion, supination, and pronation views, plus a caudocranial radiograph made with the dog in dorsal recumbency and the limb in traction.
