Abstract

• Consolidation of osteotomies and position of implants should be assessed in postoperative imaging. • MRI is useful for confirming correct articulation after treatment of congenital hip dislocation. • Radiologically assessable complications after total hip replacement are inlay wear, loosening, dislocation, periarticular ossifications and infection. • MRI can detect and classify pseudotumours in cases of metal-metal pairing after total hip replacement.
