Abstract In conclusion, a wide variety of tumors and tumor-like conditions have a predilection for the hip. The imaging evaluation of these lesions begins with radiographs. Radiographs can depict the extent of disease; any characteristic calcifications; and osseous changes, such as remodeling,periosteal reaction, or destruction. MR imaging has emerged as the preferred imaging modality of choice for evaluating osseous and soft tissue masses of the hip by providing information for diagnosis and staging. The MR imaging signal characteristics and enhancement patterns of malignant and benign hip tumors permit specific diagnoses in some cases. Synovial-based tumor-like processes of the hip can be characterized by MR signal characteristics, such as the hemosiderin within PVNS or the cartilage within synovial chondromatosis. Finally, MR imaging can serve to exclude underlying osseous or soft tissue tumors when radiographs display aggressive features of tumor-like processes.
