PURPOSE To determine the in vivo precision and accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in evaluating the thin (approximately mm) femoral neck cortex. MATERIAL AND METHODS Hip regions of 30 volunteers were scanned with standard 1.5 T MRI twice with repositioning, and the images of the narrow-neck cross-sections were obtained. Two radiologists independently delineated periosteal and endosteal cortical boundaries, and several structural variables were determined. For precision, 95% limits… CONTINUE READING
