Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome is a debilitating and highly prevalent disorder in women. Quantitative short-TE MRI sequences might overcome conventional MRI limitations in characterizing and staging gluteus tendinopathy. Ten patients and 10 asymptomatic volunteers were evaluated with hip MRI. Manual segmentations of the hip tendons were done to map T1 and T2* relaxation times. Statistically significant results were found for the T1 values of the lateral gluteus medius tendon, and for the T2* values of both parts of the gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus tendons, indicating very promising results.
