Avascular necrosis of thefemoral head (ANFH) is a pathological process that results from interrupted or impaired blood supply to bone. The multi-echo 3D Dixon technique provides the water/fat ratio quantification for evaluation of the bone marrow edema and the stage of ANFH. Our study demonstrated that femoral head water/fat permillage in ANFH was significantly higher than that of the healthy hips.
