If the ultrasound beam is vertical to the labrum it can usually be seen well. If, however, the beam is tilted the labrum may not be seen at all (Fig. 3). 25 26 3 The Standard Plane Key Points: • A plane needs three coordinates (landmarks). • The standard plane is defined through: • The lower limb of the os ilium • subitem>The mid section of the bony acetabular roof • The acetabular labrum • Hip joints must only be evaluated and measured in the standard plane (exception: decentred joints – evaluated but not measured).

For example, with a 4-month-old infant born 6 weeks early the alpha value is 57°. The classification is made and according to the calendar age is a type IIb. ) However, after taking into account that the infant was born 6 weeks early it falls within the 3-month limit and therefore may The diagnosis is secured not only by the alpha value but also by the type, which is crucial. The type is determined as a result of using several parameters: 1. Description of: • The bony roof • The osseous rim • The cartilaginous roof 2.

These sonograms can be evaluated descriptively (anatomically) (whether type III or IV) but may certainly not be measured (Sect. 4). NB. Pay special attention to the order of identification of the three landmarks. Only if the lower margin of the os ilium is shown can one proceed to check the sectional plane and lastly the labrum. 3 Checking a Hip Sonogram Start always with the anatomical identification first (epiphyseal plate, femoral head, etc. : labrum ... ).
