OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the diagnostic correlation between indirect MR arthrography, conventional MRI, and arthroscopy in acetabular labral and cartilage lesions of the hip. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen patients who underwent conventional and indirect MR arthrography with arthroscopic correlation were studied over the course of(More)
Fluid-fluid levels have commonly been reported to occur in aneurysmal bone cysts but have also been seen in telangiectatic osteosarcoma, chondroblastoma, and giant cell tumor of bone. The authors reviewed their experience with nine bone and three soft-tissue tumors that showed fluid-fluid levels on computed tomographic or magnetic resonance images. The bone(More)
The diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the evaluation of the triangular fibrocartilage complex and the intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments of the wrist was assessed in 43 patients with chronic wrist pain. Forty-one patients underwent correlative arthrography. Twenty-three patients underwent arthroscopy or arthrotomy or both. The(More)
To determine the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the evaluation of suspected rotator cuff tears, eight asymptomatic volunteers and 32 patients with rotator cuff tendonopathy who underwent surgery were examined with MR imaging. Twenty-four of these patients also underwent contrast arthrography. The ability of MR imaging to depict(More)
PURPOSE To assess the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the diagnosis of distal biceps tendon ruptures. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images of the elbow in 20 patients with suspected distal biceps injury were retrospectively reviewed along with those of eight asymptomatic volunteers. Surgical confirmation was obtained in nine cases. RESULTS(More)
The sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of lesions of the rotator cuff, glenohumeral capsule, and glenoid labrum were evaluated in ninety-one patients and fifteen asymptomatic volunteers. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated 100 per cent sensitivity and 95 per cent specificity in the diagnosis of(More)
Six patients with clinical histories and physical examination results consistent with iliotibial band friction syndrome (ITBFS) were examined with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Ill-defined decreased signal intensity on T1-weighted images and increased signal intensity on T2-weighted images was present deep to the iliotibial band, adjacent to the lateral(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the functional results of arthroscopic repair of massive rotator cuff tears in patients who had stage 3 and 4 fatty degeneration of the rotator cuff musculature, according to the Goutallier scale. METHODS From January 1997 to December 2001, 22 patients with massive rotator cuff tears and Goutallier stage 3(More)
OBJECTIVE The typical bone bruise pattern involving the anterolateral femoral condyle and inferomedial patella after transient lateral dislocation of the patella is a well-described MRI finding. In our study, however, we sought to determine the incidence and location of lateral femoral condyle osteochondral injuries after transient lateral dislocation of(More)
Preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) imaging examinations were performed with a 1.5-T superconducting magnet in 14 patients who had extensive deformities of the bones and soft tissues of the lower extremities due to previous trauma, surgery, and chronic infection. This retrospective study assessed the diagnostic performance of MR imaging in determining the(More)
