Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Salmn / M / 28 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhari.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
H/O recent intramuscular injection in the right gluteal region.
C/O pain in the left hip region since 1 month with limp.
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.
Ill-defined, hyperintense signal on the T2 Weighted and STIR images in the right gluteal region is most likely the sequelae of previous intramuscular injection.
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. There is no effusion within both the hip joints.
The visualized pelvis is normal.
The visualized sacro-iliac joints are also unremarkable.
The muscles around the left hip joints appear slightly atrophied as compared to the right.
1. Altered signal in the right gluteal region is the sequelae of previous intramuscular injection.
2. Slight atrophy of the muscles around the left hip joints as compared to the right.
3. No abnormality is detected in the hip joints or sacro-iliac joints per se.
