In this study, we reveal a scheme to evaluate the femoral head ischemia using optimized DCE-MRI for preoperative diagnosis in children with unstable SCFE. The consistency of the evaluation of DCE-MRI is verified through compare the cases which were classified as ischemia or normal after surgery. As a result, optimized DCE-MRI is a useful tool to detected femoral head ischemia in children with unstable SCFE, which allows doctors to plan a treatment strategy ahead of time. PEI and MTE using DCE-MRI contribute to an objective evaluation of the perfusion status.
