This study attempted to compare BOLD with conventional MRI sequences for determining the onset of osteonecrosis of the femoral head following steroid-related osteonecrosis. 112 patients who had received steroid treatment were scanned using conventional MRI and BOLD. The manifestation in BOLD-MRI is in accordance with the pathology of ONFH, which would allow early treatment of ONFH.
