Abstract
Computed tomographic (CT) evaluation of patients with orthopaedic implants has traditionally been limited due to considerable artifact from the prosthesis.  With proper parameter modifications; however, the artifact can be diminished and diagnostic images produced.

This is a report on the pre operative CT evaluation of a dislocated total hip replacement and dissociated acetabular component.
