Name of the Patient : Abc XyzJalmn / M / 29 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O backache and pain in the left hip joint since 1 1/2 years with limp.
M.R.I of both hips was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is synovial thickening noted within the left hip joint, (especially laterally) with effusion.
A small cyst is seen in the left iliac bone (im/se 103/15, 104/12).
Both the femoral heads and the acetabulum reveal normal signal intensity. There is no obvious bony destruction or erosions noted. There is no effusion within the right hip joint.
The musculature surrounding both the hip joints and the visualized pelvis is normal.
The MRI features are suggestive of synovial thickening within the left hip joint, laterally with effusion as described. This could be infective in etiology.
A neoplastic process should be excluded.
