Some patients are able to successfully manage hip impingement with conservative therapies, including Reducing certain types of physical activity, Physiotherapy, Pain management,Injections.
Standardised conventional antero-posterior pelvic and lateral cross-table radiographs supported the first clinical suspicion of FAI disease in almost all studies. In the scenario of FAI syndrome, if magnetic resonance with gadolinium arthrography is the standard to assess type of impingement, status and extent of labral and cartilage lesions, thee-dimensional computed tomography reconstruction is used to map the bony architecture of suspected areas.
