We analyzed MRI results from 36 patients referred for testing to assess the degree of advancement of non-traumatic avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head in adults (24 cases) or for diagnosis in difficult cases (12 cases). 32 patients were found to have AVN of the femoral head with various degree of advancement, mostly stages III and IV. In three cases the MRI did not show any pathology within the hip joint, and in one case the MRI picture was consistent with a metastatic lesion. This suggests that the value of the MRI as a sensitive diagnostic tool in the early diagnosis of AVN in adults is underestimated.
