- Thickening of the femoral neck.
- Flattening or deformity of the femoral head.
- Flattening of the acetabulum.
- Irregular acetabulum rim.
- Osteophytes on the acetabulum, femoral head and neck.
- Sclerosis of the subchondral bone.
- Two-thirds of the femoral head are covered by the acetabulum.
- The margins of the acetabulum and femoral head are parallel.
- A small, flattened area of the femoral head represents the fovea capitis, which is where the round ligament attaches. This is a normal finding.
