About The Test
An X-Ray of both the hip joint is a painless and harmless procedure that uses a little radiation dose to see the pelvic, the fractures in the hip socket, and the soft tissues around it. An X-Ray of both hip joints is done to identify any fractures of the joints that make up the hip joint. It also helps to track the recovery of the fractured bone once it has been fixed.
An X-Ray diagnostic of the hip joints allows identifying infection, osteoporosis, malformations, or any abnormal skeletal development. This helps the doctors to rule out any possibility of osteoarthritis as well as hip displacement.
