Figure 12. Mri in osteoarthritis hip

Oblique-transverse shows a small contrast material-filled femoral cartilage defect (arrowheads) in a 42-year-old woman with early osteoarthritis of the right hip joint. Adjacent cartilage (white arrow) has a hypointense signal. Partial detachment of the anteroinferior acetabular labrum (black arrow) without an adjacent cartilage defect also is seen

Consecutive oblique-transverse angle) show signal intensity alterations within the anterior part of the femoral head cartilage (arrows) in a 48-year-old woman. There was no evidence of a defect at surgery. The small amount of contrast material visible in the joint space is caused by a depression of the hyaline cartilage layer and the underlying subchondral bone (arrowheads) and is not related to thinning or defect of the cartilage layer.

Onset of pain during a golf game in a 66-year-old man who is an avid golfer. Fat-suppressed T1-weighted coronal MR image obtained with intraarticular contrast material depicts osteoarthritic disease, with joint space narrowing and osteophyte formation. The labrum is detached from the acetabulum, with contrast material at the acetabular-labral interface (short arrow). The labrum is abnormal, with loss of its triangular shape and diffuse intermediate signal intensity (arrowhead). A small cyst is developing in the adjacent soft tissues (long arrow).
