ya, it is new discovey and all news, suffers from when the recovery is good without sp treatment , diag is tenable ..
but another radiological help would be demonstration of osteoporosis of the region on Xray at the time of MR finding or atleast 2 weeks later
Absence of 2 weeks later osteoporois practically rules out TOH(ofcourse it applies to all regions )
