Current standard techniques for T1 mapping of hip cartilage are affected by flip angle variations due to B1-field inhomogeneities at 3T. The aim was to prospectively compare a 3D MP2RAGE for T1 mapping of cartilage to a 2D-IR based reference standard in the patients with hip pain undergoing indirect MR arthrography. 3D MP2RAGE correlated well with the 2D-IR reference standard and showed a minor systematic bias. This supports the continued use of 3D MP2RAGE in patients undergoing joint preserving hip surgery with the goal to establish prognostic predictors to predict the success or failure of these interventions.
