There is no established method for diagnosing femoral head necrosis before surgery, because it is difficult to predict AN due to SCFE. In this study, we propose a scheme and optimization to evaluate the femoral head perfusion in children with SCFE. Our objective is to optimize DCE-MRI and to provide useful color maps for diagnosing the femoral head perfusion.Femoral head perfusion color mapping using DCE-MRI in SCFE is useful for decision of surgical treatment method. Color maps of positive enhancement integral and maximum slope of increase contributes to evaluation of perfusion status.
