Computed tomography arthrography in traumatic hip dislocation. Intra-articular and capsular findings.
The newer diagnostic modalities such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are becoming increasingly used in the evaluation of joint trauma. The combination of computed tomography and arthrography can also be of significant diagnostic value in certain specific situations. In our case report, we describe its use in post-traumatic recurrent hip dislocation and its value, not only in depicting a posterior capsular tear, but also in the diagnosis of an internal joint derangement which may contribute to incongruous reduction of the hip joint.
