Paralabral cyst of the hip
Paralabral cysts of the hip joint are a location-specific subtype of paralabral cysts. They are predominantly small, sometimes septate, well-defined multiloculated fluid intensity lesions. They are closely associated with acetabular labral tears. Their presence requires a thorough search for a l...
The extrusion index is a radiographic measurement of femoral head bony coverage by the acetabulum. It is useful in assessing for developmental dysplasia of the hip as well as femoroacetabular impingement. It is calculated by dividing the horizontal distance of the lateral femoral head that is u...
Lateral center-edge angle
The lateral center-edge angle (LCEA) is a radiographic measurement of femoral head bony coverage by the acetabulum. It has primarily been described in assessing for acetabular dysplasia, but can also be used in femoroacetabular impingement. It is calculated on AP pelvic radiographs by using dra...
