Click Axial T1 weighted MRI sequence without contrast. 81 years-old female patient with atypical iliopsoas bursitis. An enlarged iliopsoas bursa is demonstrated at the left side extending upwards into the pelvis and communicating with the hip joint. Degenerative lesions of the left hip joint, including narrowing of joint space as well as sclerosis and bone marrow edema of the acetabulum are also illustrated.

Click Axial T2 weighted MRI sequence without contrast. 81 years-old female patient with atypical iliopsoas bursitis. T2 weighted coronal image at the level of the hip joints demonstrates degenerative lesions of the left hip joint, including narrowing of joint space as well as sclerosis and bone marrow edema of the acetabulum. High signal intensity is also present at the ipsilateral iliacus muscle just above the distended iliopsoas bursa. Small joint effusion and part of the distended iliopsoas bursa are also apparent at the left hip joint.

Click 81 years-old female patient with atypical iliopsoas bursitis. Axial T1 weighted MRI sequence with contrast (20 ml gadolinium) and with fat suppression demonstrating a non-enhancing cystic lesion lying in the left iliac fossa coursing at a lower level below the iliopsoas tendon. At the level of the hip joint the cystic lesion is demonstrated coursing below the iliopsoas tendon and totally encasing it.
