Objective: To evaluate the relationship between joint fluid, intramedullary pressure (IMP), bone marrow edema, and stages of osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). Material and methods: We reviewed the magnetic resonance (MR) images of 28 patients with 40 documented ONFHs. IMP was measured in 16 symptomatic hips. The amount of joint fluid was graded as 0 (no fluid), 1 (fluid
