Description: Indications:
- evaluation of hip pain- candidates are patients with nonspecific radiographic findings and reproducible, functionally-limiting physical signs and symptoms.
- the false negative rate of plain x-ray, bone scan, CT, arthrogram, and routine MRI has been quoted as high as 80% in some patient populations.
- gadolinium enhanced MRI demonstrated a sensitivity of 55% for all intra-articular pathology and 74% for labral tears in patients where other modalities had failed to reveal a source of pain.
