Spin-echo MR imaging has been shown to be highly sensitive in the detection of avascular necrosis. Very early avascular necrosis can, however, appear normal on MR images. We compared dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging with conventional spin-echo and short Tl inversion-recovery (STIR) sequences for detecting acute osteonecrosis in an animal model.
