Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrekh.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the LLE since 2 years. On AKT since 2 years.
H/O left hip surgery 7 years back. Details not available.
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 and Proton density sagittal images.
There is reduction in the left hip joint space. Thinning of the cartilage overlying the left femoral head is noted. There is irregularity of the acetabular margin and the subchondral region of the left femoral head. Fatty marrow changes are noted in the ischial component of the left acetabulum. The left femoral neck and proximal shaft are unremarkable. There is atrophy of the muscles around the left hip joint. There is no left hip joint effusion.
Minimal fluid is noted in the right hip joint space. The visualized right hip joint is otherwise unremarkable.
Changes in the left hip joint as described suggest secondary osteoarthritic changes. It is difficult to assess the primary etiology leading to the osteoarthritic changes in this case.
No previous investigations/surgical details were available for review/comparison.
