Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyznshah.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O right hip pain.
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 (with fat saturation) axial images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
The right femoral head is irregularly defined as is the right acetabular surface. Subtle hyperintense areas are seen in the subchondral aspect of the right femoral head on the T2 Weighted and STIR images. There is thinning of the articular cartilage overlying the right femoral head. Minimal periarticular osteophytic lipping is noted.
The left hip joint is unremarkable.
There is no effusion within both the hip joints.
There is slight enlargement of the prostate gland.
The MRI features are suggestive of osteoarthritic changes affecting the right hip joint.
