  • The value of high spatial resolution and contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was assessed in 69 patients with either femoral head avascular necrosis (AVN) or transient bone marrow edema lesions. An AVN lesion was typically a well-demarcated epiphyseal area of variable signal intensity. A transient bone marrow edema lesion appeared as an ill-delimited low-signal-intensity epiphyseal area on T1-weighted images that converted to a high-signal-intensity area on T2-weighted… CONTINUE READING
