In addition to conventional magnetic resonance imaging of the hip joints, examinations can also be carried out in natural weight-bearing positions with Upright MRI. The hips can also be examined in various positions such as rotation or flexion.
The patient can clearly see outside the system during the examination. Therefore, the procedure is also particularly well tolerated by patients with claustrophobia.
The series of images shows a 17 year-old male patient following treatment for epiphyseal dislocation of the left femoral head with pain in the left hip on flexion.
The function test conducted with Upright MRI detected an impingement.
