Case contributed by Marina Goymer


To rule out FAI, labral tear or trochanteric bursitis

Patient Data

Age: 37
Gender: Female

A solution of dilute gadolinium was injected into the hip joint under CT guidance.

There is an abnormal irregular line of focus of contrast extending through the anterior labrum from 2 - 4 o'clock.

The study is otherwise unremarkable; the articular cartilage is intact, there is normal femoral head sphericity and no soft tissue or bony oedema is identified.

There findings are consistent with a labral tear.

Acquired on a 1.5T Toshiba Titan.
