Best Imaging Modality for Metal-On-Metal Hip Arthroplasty
Peer-reviewed articles from American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). This activity offers AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) following completion of an online test.
The target audience for this activity is readers of the AJR and radiologists all training levels with an interest in musculoskeletal radiology and best practice imaging surveillance of patients with metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty
Statement of Need:
AJR articles fulfill educational needs at all practice levels by addressing new research and studies, reviewing standards of care and addressing clinical practice and educational needs. Needs sources for the AJR include clinical practice guidelines, peer-reviewed literature, and expert defined needs.
Goals and Objectives:
After completing the material in this article, the learner should be able to:
Describe the appropriate recommendations for imaging surveillance of patients with metal-on-metal (MOM) hip arthroplasties;
Discuss strengths and weaknesses of the most common used imaging modalities in assessing MOM hip arthroplasties and its complications; and
Describe the imaging findings associated with MOM hip arthroplasty complications.
Disclosure of Commercial Interest:
V. Zayas-Colon has nothing to disclose.
