© 2017 The Egyptian Society of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Objective To compare the accuracy of 2D and 3D CT measurements of femoral anteversion angle, in pediatric patients with developmental hip dysplasia. Materials and methods Twenty patients (20 hips) with unilateral non syndromic DDH were studies. CT scans were performed using a 16 slice CT scanner to measure the femoral anteversion angle (FAVA) using 2D & 3D techniques. Findings were correlated with the intra operative measurements. Results There was a significant difference between 2D & 3D methods. Results of clinical assessment were comparable to results of 3D CT assessment which range from 30 to 50° with a mean of 37.5°. Mean percent difference between 3D and intra operative measurement of FAVA was significantly lower than the corresponding value between 2D and intraoperative measurement of FAVA. Conclusion 3D is more accurate than 2D in measuring the degree of FAVA in DDH patients. It is easily applied and rapid and doesn't require sophisticated software.
