Hilgenreiner line

The Hilgenreiner line is a line drawn horizontally through the inferior aspect of both triradiate cartilages. It should be horizontal, but is mainly used as a reference for Perkin line and measurement of the acetabular angle.

Use of this line with the other lines and angles is used to diagnose developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).
