PURPOSE To determine the frequency of unsuspected pelvic fracture and soft-tissue injury in patients referred for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for possible radiographically occult hip fracture. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy patients with symptoms of possible hip fracture but negative plain radiographs were evaluated with MR imaging. Large-field-of-view T1-weighted coronal images were obtained, and additional T2-weighted or short inversion time inversion recovery (STIR) sequences were used… CONTINUE READING
