Hi, have received a report re MRI of hips undertaken to check on my HO but my appointment with specialist is a few weeks away & was looking to get a heads up beforehand, so was hoping someone could decipher my report please & translate into plain english for me if possible...
History: Heterotopic ossification about right hip.
Technique: Coronal & axial T1 & fatsat T2 sequences were obtained at both hips & sagittal T1 and fatsat T2 sequences were obtained of the right hip.
Findings: There is heterotopic ossification within the obturator externus, iliopsoas, quadratus femoris & adductor magnus muscles about the right hip. There is intermediate signal on T2 surrounding the ossification in the obtrurator externus muscle. There is no intermediate signal identified surrounding the ossification in the other muscles. Fatty marrow is present within the ossification at the posterior aspect of the intertrochanteric region of the femur at the quadratus femoris attachment. No other muscle or tendon abnormality identified about the right hip. No other muscle or tendon abnormality identified about the right hip.
There is ossification within the left iliopsoas muscle adjacent to the tendon. There is no oedema surrounding this. No other ossification identified about the left hip. A small area of subchondral reactive change is present in the anterior aspect of the left acetabular roof. No subchondral reactive change identified in the right acetabular roof. No hip joint effusion.
No abnormality involving the sacroiliac joints or symphysis. No bone marrow abnormality identified. There is 3cm diameter fibroid in the posterior aspect of the uterus.
Any help is appreciated
