Yes, I agree. This is the iliofemoral ligament and there is significant synovial proliferation here. I would call this synovitis and it is usually associated with some degenerative joint condition like OA or possibly inflammatory condition like RA. Either way I think it is an abnormal appearance even if the patient is relatively asymptomatic at the time. I do not have a measurement , however once the joint capsule becomes convex relative to the femoral neck it is thick.
