I went to an orthopedic hospital for a pain in my left shoulder since 6 months.
They first did x-ray, and the report was:

X-ray left shoulder shows reduction in subacromial space and subacromial sclerosis.

Next they did MRI and they didn't see any anomaly.

Can an (invasive) arthrogram detect shoulder anomalies that MRI can not?

  • Welcome to health SE :-). It is impossible to say over the internet whether a certain diagnostic procedure is necessary in any particular case. However, your other question seems answerable, so I edited out the personalised medical advice part, to make the question more on-topic. If you disagree with the edit, you can always roll back. – Lucky Sep 30 '16 at 14:49

  • @PillsNPillows : it is arthrogram, not arthogram. – Sebastien Palcoux Oct 4 '16 at 21:28
  • @SebastienPalcoux, oh, must have been a typo! I'll make sure to change it! I guess you can only do so many "edits" in a certain period of time as it won't let me edit it and fix it right now, but as soon as I can, I'll fix it!! Thanks for pointing it out & I'm sorry! – Pills N Pillows Oct 4 '16 at 23:21
