OK, so it’s a bilateral capsule joint that could be scanned unilaterally, or with a wide field of view that makes you responsible for reading any findings within a force field of (insert magnet bore size here). No problem, right? You would think there would be a finite list of pathologies for the hip joint. Even if that were true, you’ve still got those “film edge” (or worse, pitfall) findings in the spine, hip, thigh, abdomen and pelvis. We know how it is, because we deal with it every day too.

Fairly straightforward appearances of AVN or transient osteoporosis or trochanteric bursitis could belie a minefield of other findings you wish you’d called before the referrer called you. Proximity to so much additional anatomy and the strategic position of the hip at the juncture of the femoral connection to the extremities almost makes these scans a “2-for-1”…doubling the pressure on the reader.

Fear not, for you too can conquer the acetabular labrum and its neighbors. Our Hip MRI Mastery series includes both a realistic overview and case-based specifics that shares the process for effective hip joint evaluation while never forgetting that radiologists have to report on any findings that appear on our monitors. So we spend time on the “greatest hits” like cam vs pincer impingement and ligament, tendon and muscle tears, without neglecting the occasional sacral fracture, ovarian mass or prostatic hypertrophy. We have legacy series (Case Review, Professional and Advanced Orthopaedic and Joint) with both didactic and case review resource material, and our “Power Packs” provide a bolus of case volume (along with some good ol’ CME) to increase your hip reading confidence and buff up your MSK MR resume.
