Radiologic evaluation of hip measurements: MR versus X-ray correlation

Shock S, Abeles A, Schweitzer M, Meislin R, Babb J, Isaak C

Evaluation of hip dysplasia has traditionally been performed using standardized measurements devoloped for use with plain film radiography. The accuracy in appyling these measurements to MR images is unknown. This study suggests that the center edge angle often assessed on pain films can be similarily applied to MR images.
