Arthrography, tenography, and fistulography (or sinography) can provide additional information about the soft-tissue components of joints, tendon sheaths, and draining tracts, respectively. Arthrography is a valuable aid in the diagnosis of synovial masses, such as villonodular synovitis, and osteochondrosis. Tenography is particularly useful in evaluating chronic tendon sheath distention. Fistulography is an effective means of identifying acute traumatic damage to synovial structures and determining the cause and extent of draining tracts.
