The hip joint spaces are narrowed symmetrically. Some osteophyte formation is present on the femoral necks. Bilateral protrusio acetabuli is present. Degenerative narrowing and facet sclerosis are present in the lower lumbosacral spine. No acute fractures or bone destruction.
1. Pelvis. Findings consistent with rheumatoid arthritis. Negative for recent bony injury.
