Iliofemoral line

Last revised by Daniel J Bell on 2 Aug 2021

The iliofemoral line is traced on an AP pelvis projection. It is a curvilinear line, along the outer surface of the ilium, through the superior acetabular rim and the femoral neck.

It should be bilaterally symmetrical. Asymmetry may be the result of congenital dysplasia, slipped femoral capital epiphysis, dislocation, or fracture.
