Pelvic xray - normal different ages

Case contributed by Dr Frank Gaillard
Modality: X-ray

Normal reference images of pelvis.

Case Discussion:

The bony pelvis is formed by the sacrum and coccyx and a pair of hip bones ("ossa coxae"), which are part of the appendicular skeleton. Its primary function is the transmission of forces from the axial skeleton to the lower limbs as well as supporting the pelvic viscera.
