male, 17 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Conventinal X-Ray of the hip

    Anterior-posterior view of the pelvis shows avulsion fracture of anterior inferior iliac spine (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Conventinal X-Ray of the hip;

    Axial T1-weighted image of the hip
     

    Axial T1-weighted image shows absence of the left anterior inferior iliac spine (note the normal right anterior inferior iliac spine ), irregular acetabular margin and high signal in the gluteus minimus muscle as a...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1-weighted image of the hip;

    Axial T1-weighted image at a lower level shows the avulsed bone with low signal intensity (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1-weighted image of the hip;

    Axial STIR image shows high signal in the injured area. The avulsed bone remains with low signal intensity (arrows)
