Osteoarthritis hip MRI RadioGraphics

Plain radiographs of the hip are a cheap, widely available and easily obtained modality and their interpretation in the evaluation of osteoarthritis is not as difficult as other imaging modalities 8-10 Design: Fifty-two patients with chronic hip pain were included. 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed on all patients. Pelvic radiographs were scored according to the Kellgren-Lawrence (KL) system. Clinical outcomes were assessed by the hip osteoarthritis outcome score (HOOS) The key MR imaging features of rapidly destructive hip osteoarthritis include joint effusion (100%), bone marrow edemalike pattern in the femoral head and neck (100%) or acetabulum (83%) or both, femoral head flattening (92%), and cystlike subchondral defects (83%) CT arthrography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and magnetic resonance arthrography with two-dimensional reconstructions can delineate labral abnormalities, cartilage lesions, and other intra-articular hip pathology

Campbell, MD T he complex anatomy of the pelvis and the often subtle but significant radiographic findings can be challenging to the radiologist. A sound understanding of the standard radiographic techniques, normal anatomy, and patterns o Conventional radiography of the hips is available in most health care centres, and is relatively inexpensive and quick to acquire. Traditionally, it has been the mainstay of imaging in JIA, although given the degree of cartilage in the developing hip joint, early erosive changes can be overlooked with this modality [].Whilst radiographic scoring systems for rheumatoid arthritis in adults have. Hip pain can have multiple causes, including intra-articular, juxta-articular, and referred pain, mainly from spine or sacroiliac joints. In this review, we discuss the causes of intra-articular hip pain from childhood to adulthood and the role of the appropriate imaging techniques according to clinical suspicion and age of the patient. Stress is put on the findings of radiographs, currently.

Arthur H. Newberg and Joel S. Newman. The imaging workup of the patient with hip pain should begin with plain or routine radiographs of the pelvis and hips. Certainly, by obtaining an anteroposterior view of the pelvis, as well as a lateral radiograph (true lateral, frog lateral, or Lowenstein view) one can readily compare the right and left hips, and therefore a built-in comparison is. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) utilizes magnet and radio waves to produce diagnostic images that allow a doctor to visualize the hips. This medical imaging method can detect stress fractures or bone bruises that a regular X-ray usually misses..

At this time, it is unknown whether standard morphometric parameters of the hip measured on MRI are comparable to measurements on radiographs Septic arthritis of the hip secondary to an iliopsoas abscess is rare.1 The presence of an iliopsoas abscess can cause significant delays in the diagnosis of septic arthritis of the hip as both conditions can have similar symptoms. The radiographic features of septic arthritis are joint space narrowing, destruction of articular surfaces and sclerosis Symptomatic hip OA (SxOA) was defined as radiographic OA with ipsilateral hip pain. Results: Of 1025 subjects with radiographs, 949 films could be evaluated in both hips. Mean age was 63.5 years (sd 9.0), 56% were women, mean BMI was 27.9 (sd 4.6), 98.1% were white. 16.9% had radiographic hip OA (20.8% of men, 13.8% of women) Radiography, 19,24,25 CT, 23 and MRI 13,14,22,26,27 are validated modalities for imaging the hip in the setting of FAI. Characteristic radiographic morphologic features of both the femur and the acetabulum can facilitate, expedite, or confirm the diagnosis of clinically suspected FAI, even before gross osteoarthritic changes evolve

Corticosteroid injections used to treat osteoarthritis pain in the hip and knee may be more dangerous than previously thought, according to a special report published in Radiology. Osteoarthritis of the hip and knee are common and debilitating joint disorders. Physicians often inject anti-inflammatory corticosteroids. osteoarthritis is based primarily on the history and physical examination, but radiographic findings, including asymmetric joint space narrowing, subchondral sclerosis, osteophyt Background Knee MRI is increasingly used to inform clinical management. Features associated with osteoarthritis are often present in asymptomatic uninjured knees; however, the estimated prevalence varies substantially between studies. We performed a systematic review with meta-analysis to provide summary estimates of the prevalence of MRI features of osteoarthritis in asymptomatic uninjured knees passive internal rotation ≤ 25°. Having at least 3 out of the 5 predictor variables increased the likelihood of having hip osteoarthritis from a pre-test probability of 29% to a 68% post-test probability. If at least 4 out of 5 variables were present, the post-test probability increased to 91%. Imaging Kellgren-Lawrence grade (KL) 1, defined by a questionable osteophyte and/or doubtful joint space narrowing, is thought to be an intermediate stage from non-OA (i.e., KL 0) to definite radiographic osteoarthritis (i.e., KL ≥ 2, ROA).
