Final Pr. ID: Poster #: SCI-042
Hip pain in the active adolescent can be a diagnostic challenge. Labral tears are a common cause of pain, but on average, a lag time of greater than 2 years exists before a diagnosis is achieved. Leading etiologies of labral pathology include: trauma, femoroacetabular impingement, and dysplasia. A better understanding of hip pathology, in this age group and the development of less-invasive hip arthroscopy and surgical repair, has led to an increased number of pediatric MR hip arthrograms (MRA) being performed.
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the accuracy of our MRA reports with arthroscopic findings and create a pictorial radiologic-arthroscopic correlation. This study will assist both radiologists whom may be formally trained in pediatric radiology but have variable experience and/or training in musculoskeletal radiology, as well as our clinical colleagues to better understand the diagnostic utility of MRA.
