Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzhlmn / F / 30 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzdhwa.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right hip since 10 months.
Alleged H/O fall prior to this.
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 sagittal images.
There is an ill-defined hyperintense signal on the STIR and GRASS images at the tendinous insertion of the right gluteus medius muscle into the greater trochanter (scans 104.10-11, 106.19). This signal appears isointense to the normal muscles on the T1 Weighted images. No obvious retraction or tear of the muscles is noted.
The femoral head and the acetabulum reveal normal signal intensity bilaterally. There is no obvious bony destruction or erosions noted. The articular cartilages are unremarkable. Small effusions are noted within both the hip joints.
Small cysts are seen in both avaries.
The visualized pelvis is normal.
Altered signal at the tendinous insertion of the right gluteus medius muscle into the greater trochanter may suggest tendinitis or trochanteric bursitis.
