Patients who present with hip pain can have multiple origins of pathology—this may be intra- or extra-articular in origin

In the majority, a definable diagnosis can be obtained through a detailed history, examination, and subsequent radiological evaluation

However, there remains a group of patients who have intractable hip pain without a definitive diagnosis despite extensive non-invasive radiological investigation.
