Patient
male, 42 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    AP pelvis

    Marked mature new bone formation is noted in the soft tissues surrounding both hip joints. There is extensive periarticular osseous bridging.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: AP pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT scan
     

    Extensive mature new bone is demonstrated anterior to both hip joints. The new bone abuts the neurovascular bundle. The joint space appears preserved.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT scan;

    Inferior image demonstrating similar findings to figure 2a.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT scan;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MRI

    Gradient echo, T1 weighted axial images demonstrate increased intensity within the new bone, indicating the presence of bone marrow. The femoral vessels are patent.
