Hi I had an mri on my hips three days ago. No results yet but

Resolved Question:

Hi I had an mri on my hips three days ago. No results yet but I have a copy of the CD from the scan. I have taken a couple of shots on the camera of an anterior image and the front view. There seems to be an obvious injury of some description to my right hip. I am a runner and pain in the sacroiliac joint has been present for over two years now. I have always been told that it is just an inflammation of this joint by physiotherapist. This is the first scan I had. I wonder if there is a doctor who could look at the scan photo and tell me what they think?

Hi this is the link to the shots on photobucket.



Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Thanks Sharon--sorry JA didn't send me anything as yet. Let me ask--the pain is in your SI joint and not in your hip? And since there's only one good view there, it really doesn't show the SI joint
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The pain I presented with this time is on the other side around the ischial tuberosity. 12 weeks now and was originally diagnosed as a hamstring strain. I have only low grade ache in the sacroiliac joint but gave just got on with it for more than 2 years now. When I run it feels like the tightening starts there in the sacroiliac joint and goes all the way down my leg. I feel like my hip/ back is being pulled towards the back of my leg. For some months I was able to manage by stretching it out and setting off slowly but as time wore on it happened more and more frequently and got more acute each time it happened.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Sharon. All I can say a about the on MRI image you gave me that I can comment on is that it looks like you have a labral tear--a tear in the cartilage that forms part of the socket of the ball-and-socket hip joint. That would explain part of the problem but you may also have ischial tuberosity syndrome with ischial bursitis. I can't determine that from the one view. At least the full radiology report will cover that if that's the case
