Acetabular labrum ossification is not common and I have been able to find only a few reports on it. The cases we have seen mostly have an underlying dysplastic, elongated labrum however there are reports of it occurring in a normal labrum. So what does it look like? Having learnt the hard way by missing them by looking only at the MRI, I find the best place to start is with the plain X-ray as it can be overlooked if assessing just the MRI.
We look at all of these topics in more detail in our HIP MRI Mini Fellowships.
