Dynamic MSK ultrasound imaging in snapping hip syndrome

Is dynamic MSK ultrasound imaging a useful diagnostic tool for snapping hip syndrome?

Snapping hip syndrome is a common condition in teenagers and young adults participating in sports that require extreme hip motions, such as running and soccer. Snapping hip syndrome can be classified as intra-articular (caused by labral tears, foreign bodies, synovial foldings, fracture fragments) and extra-articular. The latter can further be classified as external  (caused by frcition or subluxation of the ITB or anterior portion of the Gluteus maximus over the greater trochanter) or internal snapping (induced by iliopsoas tendon impingement on the iliopectineal eminence, superior pubic ramus  or anterior inferior iliac spine).
