US Neonatal Hips

Findings: Grayscale sonographic images of bilateral hips with and without stress demonstrate symmetric femoral epiphyses. Left femoral head is partially uncovered by the acetabulum.

The alpha angle on the right measures [more than 55%] degrees and greater than 50% of femoral head is covered by the acetabulum.

The alpha angle on the left measures [58] degrees and the femoral head is [45%] covered by the acetabulum. There is no evidence of joint effusion bilaterally. There is no subluxation with stress.

Normal alpha angle is greater than 60 degrees. Normal acetabular coverage is greater than 50%.




Impression:
1. Minimal left developmental dysplasia of the hip without subluxation on stress.
2. Normal right hip.
