If you are an athletic trainer, physical therapist, or team physician, please contact Nicole Battle. Nicole is an athletic trainer who serves in a clinical role on Dr. Dumont’s team and also acts as a liaison for athletes with hip injuries across the state and region. She can assist in establishing a consultation with Dr. Dumont. Alternately, your athlete can complete an appointment request form.

Imaging the Hip

If you are a referring physician and considering obtaining diagnostic imaging of the hip as part of your evaluation, our team recommends use of a three view series of plain radiographs including a well centered AP Pelvis view, a Dunn 45 degree lateral view, and a false profile view. MRIs without arthrogram provide good assessment of the hip joint and extra-articular structure when performed on a 3T (3 Tesla) MRI scanner. If you need assistance locating a facility that offers this, please contact us. Without a 3T MRI, an MRI arthrogram is sometimes necessary.
