Radial images through the center of the acetabulum in the plane including the entire acetabular rim are useful for evaluating acetabular labral injuries, and those perpendicular to the center of the femoral head through the central axis of the femoral neck enable evaluation of the morphological findings of femoroacetabular impingement. Continuous thin-slice images from optimized 3D fat-suppressed multi-echo gradient-recalled-echo allow 360° radial reformation of hip joints, offering precise evaluation of the range of acetabular labral injury and femoroacetabular impingement morphology.
