IGHL Synovitis MRI Findings


  1. Thickening of the IGHL
  2. Increased signal on PD/ PDFS.
  3. Anterior band more commonly involved than posterior band.

                With capsulitis/ synovitis, the IGHL thickens and becomes hyperintense on the PD and PDFS scans.

 Image above: Diffuse thickening and increased PD signal of the IGHL ( blue arrows). The anterior limb ( Blue arrows) is much thicker than the posterior limb ( Pink arrow) and both are abnormal in signal.

            Image Above: Thickened IGHL with significant increase in signal on the PD and PDFS ( Blue arrows). Posterior limb ( Pink arrow ) on this image is normal.
