  • Figure 1
    Transverse T2-weighted fat saturated MR image

    MR-image through the right lesser trochanter (LT) and ischium (I) shows the ischiofemoral space (full line), quadratus femoris space (dotted line), quadratus femoris muscle (asterisks), and a bursalike formation...

  • Figure 2
    Transverse T2-weighted fat saturated MR image

    MR image of both hips shows also narrowing of the ischiofemoral space on the left (double arrow) and intratendinous signal changes and thickening of the hamstring tendons on the right (arrow).
