X - Ray Right Hip Joint LAT View
What is X - Ray Right Hip Joint LAT View?
An X-Ray Right Hip Joint LAT View is a non-invasive, painless test that uses a small amount of radiation to visualise the pelvis, the bones of the hip joint, and the soft tissues (skin and muscles) around it. The image takes on a specially developed X-ray film. The X-ray picture is black and white.
The actual radiation exposure period is often less than a second, while the entire test may take between 15-20 minutes.
Right Hip Joint LAT View X-Ray identifies any fractures of the bones that make up the hip joint and monitors the healing of the broken bone after it has been set. Detects infection, osteoporosis, abnormalities, or irregular bone development and diagnoses suspected osteoarthritis or hip dislocation.
