PurposeIn the diagnosis of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and X-ray are widely accepted methods for detection. When evaluating the hip head-neck junction using MRI, oblique axial sequences are required. However, the construction and analysis of these images are restricted to specialist radiologists and surgeons in the field of hip joint MRI. This study sought to investigate whether ultrasound, a simple and inexpensive method, can be used as a reliable tool… CONTINUE READING
