Metal-on-metal pseudotumor


MR and US confirm the presence of a pseudotumor secondary to extensive, mass-like thickening of the synovium of the right hip.  The low signal returned from the deep aspect of the synovium is consistent with synovial metallosis.

A MARS (metal artifact reduction sequence) may be necessary to make the abnormality visible in cases of smaller pseudotumors.
