Femoroacetabular impingement: Radiographic diagnosis-what the radiologist should know
Tannast, M., Siebenrock, K. A., & Anderson, S. E. (2008). Femoroacetabular impingement: Radiographic diagnosis-what the radiologist should know. Radiología, 50(4), 271-284. doi: 10.1016/S0033-8338(08)71986-6
Objective: The purpose of this article is to show the important radiographic criteria thatindicate the two types of femoroacetabular impingement: pincer and cam impingement. In addition, potential pitfalls in pelvic imaging concerning femoroacetabular impingement are shown.
Conclusion: Femoroacetabular impingement is a major cause for early “primary” osteoarthritis of the hip. It can easily be recognized on conventional radiographs of the pelvis andthe proximal femur.
