Caption: Hip joint. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of a left-hand hip joint, seen from the side with the front of the body at left. The bones are pale yellow, and other tissues are pink. This view shows the head of the femur (upper leg bone, lower right) articulating with the pelvic coxal (hip) bone. The wing of the pelvis is at upper right, and the pelvic girdle extends inwards towards the centre of the body (lower left). The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint, with the ball being the head of the femur, and the socket being the cavity in the hip bone. CT scanning uses multiple X-ray beams to scan the body from different angles. Computers create a 3D image of the area scanned.
