Thirty-two patients with avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head underwent imaging studies using computed tomography with multiplanar reconstructions (CT/MPR). Staging of the disease by means of CT/MPR images was compared with traditional staging by means of routine frontal and frog-leg lateral radiographs. CT/MPR examination upgraded staging in 30% of… CONTINUE READING
