Future evaluation of intra-articular hip pathology will be largely influence by stronger MR magnetic fields (3T and greater), improved coil technology, and expanding knowledge base. The ultimate goal will be to create an easily reproducible noninvasive test with conspicuity of abnormal findings. We are currently evaluating the role of stress positioning and kinematic imaging to assess for biomechanical soft tissue dysfunction of the capsule, labrum, and ligamentum teres. We are evaluating computer-generated bone collision detection to help predict and visualize femoroacetabular impingement to aid surgical planning.
