This pilot study evaluated hydroxyapatite (HA) implants (Endobon) into bone with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Nineteen patients (median age 57 years; range 18–67 years) have been evaluated. Eight received granulated HA into vertebral bodies after trauma, while 11 received HA blocks into extremity bones after trauma (n = 8) or fibrous dysplasia (n = 2). In a 1.5-T MR scanner, transversal T1-weighted, flash, 2-dimensional images were obtained. Signal intensities were measured in regions of… CONTINUE READING
