Congratulations to Dr. Fehring for his recent publication in Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (CORR) on MRI Abnormalities in Metal-on-polyethylene Hips

Clin Orthop Relat Res. 2015 Feb;473(2):574-80. doi: 10.1007/s11999-014-3873-6.
Metal Artifact Reduction Sequence MRI Abnormalities Occur in Metal-on-polyethylene Hips.
​Fehring TK, Fehring K, Odum SM. abstract

The purpose of the study was to determine the importance of MRI abnormalities in metal-on-metal (MoM) bearings .It is important to understand the baseline features of this diagnostic tool in conventional metal-on-polyethylene (MoP) bearings.
