Patients With Type III SIF More Likely to Progress to Collapse

Background: Subchondral insufficiency fractures (SIF) of the femoral head can resolve with conservative management or result in collapse and require surgery. These appear as a band of low signal that is parallel to the articular surface on T1-weighted sequences. Objective: To describe the signal characteristics of femoral head SIF with fat-suppressed T2-weighted imaging and attempt to correlate these signal characteristics with patient outcomes. Design/Methods: The authors used a r more...
