Asymptomatic, healthy patients (without hip pain or prior hip disease) will be recruited. Patients will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the hip joints to evaluate for the prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI).
Radiation: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Participation in this study will involve patients coming to the hospital after regular work hours for an MRI of the hip joints.
- Prevalence of Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) [ Time Frame: Pre-operative on Day of MRI ]Prevalence of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), a newly recognized cause of early arthritis of the hip, will be investigated by means of hip MRI to evaluate for abnormal morphology of the anterior head-neck junction of the femur. Participant MRIs were reviewed by two independent radiologists. The prevalence of FAI was calculated as determined by an abnormal alpha angle (greater than 50.5 degrees).
