Abstract

Osteoarthritis of the hip is commonly caused by the repetitive contact between abnormal skeletal prominences between the anterosuperior femoral head-neck junction and the rim of the acetabular socket. Current methods for estimating femoroacetabular impingement by analyzing the sphericity of the femoral head require manual measurements which are both inaccurate and open to interpretation. In this research we provide a prototype software tool for improving this estimation.
