Imaging the hip cartilage using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is more challenging compared with other joints. The utilize of higher magnetic field strengths (>3T) is able to improve the assessment of cartilage structures in the hip. In this study we evaluated morphological 5T hip MRI in healthy subjects and compared image quality at 5T with 3T MRI. The results revealed that morphological 5T hip MRI in healthy subjects was superior to 3T MRI in image quality, visibility of the anatomical structures and contrast ratios.
