Abstract

Magnetic resonance arthrography and 3T magnetic resonance imaging of the hip are a technique commonly performed in young, physically active patients presenting with pain relating to the hip, with the focus on assessing for the presence of labral tears and femoroacetabular impingement. Abnormal signal within the labrum can be misleading, however, as labral tears are a frequent incidental finding and have been identified in a large proportion of the asymptomatic population. A range of extralabral conditions can cause hip-related pain in young patients, including pathology related to the bones, joints, and periarticular soft tissues. It is vital that the radiologist is aware for these pathologies and examines for them even in the presence of a confirmed labral tear. In this article, we review a range of common extralabral pathologies responsible for hip pain and highlight review areas that aid in their diagnosis.
