This is a late film, when most of the contrast is already absorbed, so that the two centres of ossification can be seen (arrows). studies (Fig. 21, c) were carried out at about this time. Both hip joint capsules were shown to be normal but the fragmentation and irregularity of the right metaphysealepiphyseal junction was again obvious; the left arthrogram appeared normal. She was followed up as an outpatient; recently, at the age of five years, she was referred back with limping on the right side.

The one that we use (Fig. 15) consists of two components; (i) a stainless steel bridge across the radiographic table; (ii) the saddle part, mounted on the bridge on stainless steel bars. Both the bridge and the mountings must be above the hip area so that they do not obscure the hip image. The pelvis is mainly held by the saddle which supports the lumbar spine and the sacrum.
