Name of the Patient : Abc XyzIlmn / M / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc XyzV. Shah.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right hip joint.
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 GRASS (with fat saturation) sagittal images.
Subtle areas of hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turn hyperintense on the T2 Weighted, STIR and GRASS images are seen to involve the acetabulum on the right side with erosion of the cortical margin.
Slight amount of fluid is noted within both the hip joints, right more than left.
A focal hypointensity on the T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted images is seen in the body of the right acetabulum, posteriorly and medially. This may represent a bone island.
Susceptibility artifacts are seen in the gluteal region, posteriorly and to the left of the midline.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal within the right acetabulum, with erosion of the cortical margin as described may be inflammatory/infective in etiology.
