The patient is supine on a radiolucent operating room table. With the hip in full extension and neutral rotation, the joint is slowly flexed past 90 degrees with progressive manual force applied through the hip along the longitudinal axis of the femur. The hip is concurrently visualized with use of C-arm image intensifier fluoroscopic imaging. If the hip joint remains congruent during this assessment, the examination is repeated with the addition of approximately 20 degrees of adduction and approximately 20 degrees of internal rotation. In general, the examination is performed twice, with use of both the anteroposterior and the obturator oblique fluoroscope projection.
