Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzemal Mlmn / M / 64 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyz. Shah.
Examination : M.R.I. of Both Hips.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O pain in the right hip joint 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.
5 mm thick Proton density sagittal images.
There are multiple areas within the femora bilaterally involving the head, neck and shaft, left acetabulum and the left iliac bone which are hypointense to fat on the T1 Weighted images with a hypointense serpingeneous periphery. These are seen to turn heterogeneously hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images.
The contour of the right femoral head is irregularly defined.
The right acetabulum reveals normal signal intensity. There is no effusion within both the hip joints.
The musculature surrounding both the hip joints is normal.
There is mild enlargement of the prostate gland. There is probable hydrocele on the right side.
The MRI features are suggestive of altered signal in both the femora, left acetabulum and left iliac bone and would most likely
represent bone infarcts.
