X - Ray Left Hip Joint AP View
What is X - Ray Left Hip Joint AP View?
X-Ray Left Hip Joint AP View is an imaging test that helps detect any potential fractures, dislocations, bone lesions, or degenerative diseases of the left hip joint. An X-ray is a form of high-energy electromagnetic radiation that gives images of the affected joint. It helps visualize any abnormality with the hip bone and the hip joint.
The X-ray is conducted on the patient while the patient is in a lying-down position. X-rays are considered primarily safe but can be dangerous in some cases. Exposure to the radiation can pose a minor risk to the patient. Pregnant women cannot get an X-ray done as there is a small chance that the radiation can harm the baby in the womb.
Why is X - Ray Left Hip Joint AP View done?
- To diagnose any fracture of the bones that form the hip joint and to monitor the healing of the broken bone, after it has been set.
- To detect any infection, osteoporosis, deformities or abnormal growth of the bones.
- To diagnose any suspected osteoarthritis or dislocation of the hip joint.
