The increased sclerosis in the left subcapital femoral neck region, along with the shortening of the femoral neck is indicative of a subcapital femoral neck fracture.
A horizontal beam lateral projection of the hip is the preferred projection for suspected neck of femur fractures to avoid patient discomfort, in this case, an oblique hip has been performed. Be cautious when assessing the AP pelvis for symmetry before deciding what projection needs to follow.
