Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Developmental deformity of both sides of the hip joint (dysplasia) may be present at birth or become apparent months to years later. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for preventing severe long-term structural abnormalities. Diagnostic methods include the Ortolani and Barlow maneuvers in newborn infants and analysis of radiographic lines drawn on anteroposterior views of the hip and pelvis. Ultrasonography has the lead role in early diagnosis, with conventional radiography becoming more effective after ossification of the femoral head has begun. Conventional tomography, contrast arthrography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are valuable both preoperatively and postoperatively in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip.

The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format.
This will be an official peer-reviewed publication.
The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV.
The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author.
A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about)
The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
