  • OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe the MR appearance of the acetabular labrum in asymptomatic subjects and correlate the MR appearance with age and sex. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated high-resolution T1-weighted spin-echo coronal MR images of one hip in each of 200 asymptomatic individuals (84 men, 116 women; mean age, 44 years old; range, 15-82 years old). The labral shapes (triangular, round, flat, or absent), the intralabral signal intensity changes, and the possible… CONTINUE READING
