European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2022, Volume 9, Issue 4, Pages 2506-2515
AbstractAvascular necrosis of femoral head (AVNFH) is a progressive, multifactorial and challenging, debilitating disease affecting mostly the middle aged population.
AVN can present with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from incidental finding in asymptomatic patients to severe pain, functional limitations, and compromising the quality of life.1,2
Magnetic resonance imaging has recently emerged as the most sensitive, specific, and widely used diagnostic tool for avascular necrosis of femoral head. In most reports, MRI can diagnose very early lesions with a greater than 90 percent specificity and sensitivity.3
Present study was aimed to assess the role of MRI in the evaluation of clinically suspected cases of AVN of hip and to describe the imaging features along with proper staging.
