MRI Pelvis With Hip
What is MRI Pelvis With Hip?
The Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI) scan test uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D images. The MRI pelvis with hip is a radiationless test which creates images of the pelvic region, between the hip bones and the areas surrounding the pelvic and hip region. These images can be stored on an electronic device which can be printed on a film. The complete procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.
Why is MRI Pelvis With Hip done?
- To diagnose pain/inflammation/swelling/fracture in the pelvic region
- To detect osteitus pubis (swelling of pubic symphysis with its attached muscles)
- To find out sacrum and iliac joint dysfunction
- To analyze pagets disease (condition in which new bone tissues replaces old bones at high rates leading to weak and fragile bone)
- To detect pelvic tilt (gut protrudes and hip sticks)
