Heterotopic ossification

Affiliation: Tripler Army Medical Center

ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Heterotopic ossification

History: Rule out right hip prosthesis loosening.

Findings: Bone scan of the hip and proximal femurs demonstrates increased soft tissue uptake adjacent to but not within the right acetabulum. Correlation with plain film radiographs demonstrates ossification within the soft tissues adjacent to the right acetabulum, confirming heterotopic ossification. Bone scan findings of heterotopic ossification can precede radiographic findings by 4-6 weeks.

Plain film of the hip demonstrates soft tissue ossification adjacent to the right acetabulum, consistent with heterotopic bone formation.
