Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzmendra Shislmn / M / 5 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhari.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the RLE with limp since March 0000.
M.R.I of both hips was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick GRASS sagittal images.
There is seen flattening of the epiphysis of the right femoral head which shows a hypointense signal on all the pulse sequences, which suggests sclerosis. Hyperintense signal on the STIR and GRASS images in the neck of the right femur may represent bone edema. The visualized right acetabulum shows normal contour. There is a small right hip joint effusion. The muscles around the right hip joint appears slightly atrophied.
The visualized left hip joint is unremarkable.
Flattening of the epiphysis of the right femoral head with sclerosis suggests Perthes disease. Altered signal in the neck of the right femur suggests bone edema.
