Also, the severity of coxa varaif present, will influence treatment priximal. The ability of GRE imaging to clearly depict cartilage is of particular value in this setting.

Routine coronal and axial MR images may be adequate, however, oblique images may be useful in some patients. Arthrography permits the presence or absence of a femoral head to be confirmed; it has been used as an adjunct.
