Avascular necrosis of the femoral head
Since the clinical presentation of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head is often non-specific, imaging findings are key to an early and definite diagnosis of AVN, influencing the patient treatment and outcome.
Still, the diagnosis of early AVN remains challenging on a plain radiography. An MRI is therefore the imaging modality of choice.
