Chapter 123 discusses US of the hip and thigh. US scanning of the hip and thigh is frequently used in evaluation of hip joint effusions and synovitis; common tendon pathology about the hip and pelvis, including the gluteal, hamstring, iliopsoas, and adductor tendons; muscle injuries; and in evaluation of hip bursae such as the iliopsoas and trochanteric bursae. Dynamic US evaluation may identify the etiology of a “snapping hip,” which has a number of potential etiologies. US examination may be comprehensive or focal. A patient-guided examination in the area of focal symptoms may help in identification of subtle pathology.
