NUNES, Rafael Borges; AMARAL, Denise Tokechi and OLIVEIRA, Valesca Sarkis de. Radiological propedeutics of femoroacetabular impingement in times of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging: what a radiologist needs to know. Radiol Bras [online]. 2011, vol.44, n.4, pp. 249-255. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842011000400011.
Following a brief description of the types of femoroacetabular impingement, the present article describes the protocol of conventional radiology, computed tomography e magnetic resonance imaging for cases of impingement, developed over the last eight years in a partnership with reference orthopedic institutions. Basic radiological propedeutics is described for each of the methods, reviewing the most relevant findings in the assessment of the hip.
