Morphologic MRI is commonly performed to assess the presence and extent of abnormal synovial reaction in total hip arthroplasty (THA) but relies on the reader’s training for an accurate diagnosis. Newly developed quantitative methods, including MAVRIC based T2 mapping, may provide a quantitative means for assessing synovial reactions. This study performed MAVRIC based T2 mapping on individuals with THA. Prolonged T2 values were found in subjects with synovitis. This study displays the feasibility of MAVRIC based T2 mapping near THA.
