Which x-rays to check bhr angles?
« on: February 13, 2018, 12:50:38 PM »
Hello everyone,

I am one year post-op and I would like to get some x-rays to send to my surgeon, does anyone what the names are of the poses to check the angles?  I am in a different country and trying to get them done.  Thank you.

 :) Hi email your surgeon.
There are various angles and all surgeons are different with what they want.
So if you can check with them first.
The radiographers  can google these angles and positions.
Hope this helps.
