Piriformis syndrome: muscle thickness or volume does not correlate with response to CT-guided injection
ConclusionPiriformis muscle volume or thickness did not significantly correlate with post-injection outcome (first injection response and pain-free survival). Thus, if the patient has clinical symptoms of piriformis syndrome, the size of muscle should not determine whether injection is advisable. (Source: Skeletal Radiology)

Multidisciplinary, articular surface-preserving treatment strategy for locally aggressive epithelioid hemangioma of the acetabulum employing serial bland transarterial embolization
We report a novel multidisciplinary, joint-sparing treatment approach for an epithelioid hemangioma of bone arising in the acetabulum causing severe thinning of the subchondral bone plate. After 4 sessions of transarterial bland particle and ethanol embolization, the resultant increased ossification of the tumor allowed preservation of the articular surface during surgical resection. Imaging follow-up 14 months after surgical resection showed no evidence of recurrence and continued ossification of the portions of the lesion treated only with embolization.

Juxtaneural ganglia arising from the hip joint: focus on magnetic resonance imaging findings and clinical manifestations
ConclusionThis article describes rare cases of juxtaneural ganglia arising from the hip joint and involving the sciatic and obturator nerves. The lesions share similar MRI findings, and each type of cyst (sciatic or obturator ganglia) involves a specific labral quadrant. (Source: Skeletal Radiology)

Deep vein thrombosis in the thigh: MR imaging in two cases with atypical presentations
AbstractDeep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a common clinical problem affecting the lower extremities. Prompt imaging of suspected DVT is helpful for rapid diagnosis and proper treatment. However, patients without clear predisposing factors for DVT may be directed to alternative diagnoses of a musculoskeletal disorder. The few case reports and studies of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of unsuspected DVT are limited to the calf and knee. Here, we report two cases with a rare presentation of thigh MR imaging of unsuspected DVT. Identifying branching, abnormal intraluminal signals on fluid-sensitive imaging, or rim-enhancing tubul...
