Why is it important?

Inlet radiography is a quick and economical alternative with less radiation and equally effective when compared to CT in the control reduction of hip dysplasia reduction.


Although I have had the honor of working side by side with the most experienced co-authors in the treatment of hip dysplasia, I have also been able to help children, who now have a comfortable, fast, cheap, postoperative control examination and equally efficient for CT. I recommend reading this article as this new examination can have a considerable impact on the routine of doctors and patients in the treatment of this disease.
