Hip bursae are synovial fluid-filled sacs around the hip region, including the greater trochanter of the femur. Bursae often facilitate movement and reduce friction where tendons or muscles pass over bony structures. Hip bursae can be either communicating or non-communicating with the hip joint itself. Most are only evident on imaging if distended.
