Boston Children’s orthopedic team uses a variety of tests to diagnose hip dysplasia.
The first step is a thorough patient history and physical exam. During the exam, the physician checks the range of motion to determine any limitations.
Next, imaging studies are ordered, including x-ray, MRI or a CT scan, to confirm the diagnosis of hip dysplasia.
Boston Children’s hip preservation team developed a special MRI technique to detect any early arthritis caused by hip dysplasia or other hip abnormalities. The technique—called dGEMRIC (delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage)—is often recommended for patients with hip dysplasia.
Sometimes, an ultrasound-guided diagnostic injection will be recommended to confirm the location of hip pain.
