Abstract

With its superior anatomical resolution and high sensitivity in depicting pathological processes of the joint, bone marrow and surrounding soft tissue structures, MR imaging is the ideal modality for demonstrating the manifestations and sequelae of the infective and inflammatory conditions common to the hip. Though the imaging features of these conditions may overlap, combining the clinical history and results and other imaging modalities yields a higher degree of specificity, ultimately enhancing the confidence of the radiological interpretation.
