Acetabular orientation is important to consider in hip joint pathology and treatment. This study aims to describe the functional orientation of the acetabulum as a representative measure of force transmitted through the hip joint generated from bone density mapping and compare it to landmark-based anatomical orientation measures. CT scans of 38 non-pathologic individuals were analyzed. Functional orientation was computed as the density-weighted average of the acetabular surface normals based on… CONTINUE READING
