Radiographs adequately demonstrate most fractures and dislocations at the hip and pelvis as well as nontraumatic disorders such as the various arthritides.
Computed tomography (CT) provides optimal visualization of complex fracture characteristics especially in distinguishing fractures of the acetabulum or in localizing the position of fracture fragments.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the best choice for evaluating injuries to the acetabular labrum and articular cartilage; assessing femoroacetabular impingement; and assessing and staging avascular necrosis of the femoral head.
