Hip Labrum Stem Cell Injection MRI
The bright spot in the middle of that dark triangle indicates a tear. The post-stem-cell-injection-procedure image is on the right. The procedure was a precise ultrasound-guided injection of the patient’s own stem cells into the tear. Note the triangle-shaped labrum in the after image (inside the dashed yellow circle) is now almost uniformly dark, indicating no or less tear.
The images below you are viewing are of a 27 year old male with Avascular Necrosis of the hip. He was treated with a precise injection of his own stem cells into his femur using fluoroscopy.
