    Here is a very nice article I've found on the web that explains how to identify if the hip x-ray is done correctly, as well as contain tons of pics of good and bad x-rays and hips.

    When an x-ray is not performed properly, it can make perfectly good hips look as if they have HD. Be educated and informed so you know what you're looking at.

    Really nice info. It can be very difficult to get the proper position for a hip film.
