  • PURPOSE To determine the frequency of several subchondral magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features observed in bone marrow edema lesions of the femoral head and to determine their value for differentiation of irreversible from transient lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The authors reviewed MR images of 72 femoral head lesions in 42 men and 25 women (median age, 48 years) with equivocal radiographic findings and bone marrow edema seen at MR imaging (T1- and T2-weighted images in all patients and… CONTINUE READING
