Abstract

Hip joint X-ray examination is one of the most accessible and prevalent method of roentgen diagnostics despite the emergence and development of new research options such as CT and MRT. X-ray study is the first method used for patients with hip pain. The main problem that arises in the analysis of radiographs is the incorrectly performed examination. Technically correct X-ray examination reveals the majority of changes contributing to the progression of deforming hip arthrosis, to identify changes in the early stage and to choose the best method of treatment. The article describes the basic X-ray studies and the required minimal measurements for assessing hip condition.
