3MRIs in 3yrs =early AVN of joint/wornout cartlidge/torn labrum. Bc of worsening symptoms, had new MRI =normal except ligament tear. Mixup or healed??
If it's the hip you-: -are talking about, it sounds like a mix up to me. Things such as a labral tear as well as AVN do not heal like that. If the MR was done on a different machine it can make a difference. Each MR has its own quirks or handwriting if you may, as well as power. 1.5T doesn't show details as well as a 3.0T. There are now 6.0T. MR's in large centers but more dangerous if you have any metallic pieces in U ...Read more
