Visual image evaluation of the acetabular labrum. Bar chart of the total score obtained from three readers. Wilcoxon signed-rank test values (MEAN ± SD:*) were as follows: PDW 0.111 ± 0.542, T1W 0.238 ± 0.665, and FS-T2W 0.248 ± 0.567. No significant differences were observed in PDW, whereas T1W and FS-T2W of the labrum by conventional methods were significantly superior to those of SMS. PDW: proton density-weighted; T1W: T1-weighted; FS-T2W: fat-saturated T2-weighted; SMS: Simultaneous multi-slice; CNV: Conventional; EQUAL: equal
