Hip biomechanics: importance to functional imaging. Seminars in musculoskeletal radiology Robertson, D. D., Britton, C. A., Latona, C. R., Armfield, D. R., Walker, P. S., Maloney, W. J. 2003; 7 (1): 27-41


Although well recognized the hip joint is not well understood. In many respects knowledge of the hip is similar to that of the knee several decades ago.

This article describes relevant anatomy and mechanics and details the crucial role that imaging plays in current assessments of hip function.
