Abstract

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head is a common disease affecting both children and adults causing acute hip pain and functional impairment. Among the various techniques allowing a correct diagnosis, MRI represents the gold standard for an early detection, the latter being useful for a positive outcome. The purpose of this review is to describe the imaging findings of the osteonecrosis of the femoral head.
