Objectives: We aimed to determine, the mean values of the hip angles at Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI) of Turkish patients, gender variances and to demonstrate the difference in measurements between the painless and painful sides of the same case. Methods: Retrospectively, 182 patients who underwent hip MRI for hip pain were included in the study. In MRI, Collodiaphyseal angle (CDA), Acetabular angle (AA), Tönnis angle (T-angle), acetabular depth (AD), anteversion angle (AnA), protrusio acetabuli (PA) and alpha angle (AF) were measured. Results: The mean CDA, AA, T-angle, AD, PA, AnA, AF was 131.90o, 35.90o, 7.20o, 21 mm, (-4.9) mm, 17.90o, 50o respectively. CDA, T-angle and AD values were lower at women (p<0.05). In the right hip angle measurements, CDA and AF values were found high (p<0.05) in the painful group. AnA observed higher, at right hip pain than bilateral, in the group with unilateral pain (p<0.05); but there was no difference on the left side. In unilateral and bilateral hip pain, there was no difference in the angle measurements. Conclusion: CDA, T and AD were found lower at women than men. CDA and AnA increase in the group with pain. We think that grasp of the femur head by acetabulum changes due to pain. The measurements on the right side differ from the left, may depend on loading. Prolongation of the process may cause labrum damage and osteoarthritis. Keywords: Angle measurements, hip, pain
