Abstract

Real-time sonography is gaining wide acceptance as the method of choice for imaging the infant hip. The dynamic technique of hip sonography incorporates motion and stress maneuvers that are based on accepted clinical examination techniques. The multiview dynamic assessment emphasizes hip position and stability, but includes assessment of acetabular development. It has been found to be effective in the initial detection of infant hip abnormalities and in monitoring treatment.
