Periarticular soft tissues unremarkable.
Findings compatible with osteitis pubis.
Osteitis pubis is a self-limited painful non-infectious inflammation of the symphysis pubis. The most common causes of this condition are pregnancy/childbirth, pelvic surgery, trauma and athletic activity.
The postpartum period may lead morphologic changes on CT or MR imaging that require detailed analysis and accurate diagnosis by radiologists.
