Imaging of disease processes about the elbow requires an understanding of the anatomy and development of the joint and adjacent bones. In most cases plain radiographs provide sufficient information to make the correct diagnosis. Arthrography permits better delineation of the joint space and articular cartilage. Radionuclide imaging is a sensitive indicator of early disease processes, and magnetic resonance imaging combines sensitivity with the ability to demonstrate soft tissue as well as skeletal anatomy.
