Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Mahlmn / F / 5 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyztel.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right hip region with inability to sit since 2 months.
M.R.I of both hips was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) axial images.
4 mm thick Proton density sagittal images.
There are areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images within the right hip joint space per se. This may represents effusion with ? synovial thickening. There is slight irregularity of the lateral aspect of the epiphysis of the right femoral head. It however shows normal signal intensity.
Areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images are seen within the right acetabulum.
There is no obvious bony destruction or erosions noted. The articular cartilages are unremarkable.
The left hip joint is unremarkable.
The musculature surrounding both the hip joints and the visualized pelvis is normal.
The MRI features are suggestive of a joint efffusion with probable synovial thickening with altered signal of the right acetabulum as described. This may represents an inflammatory/infective process.
