Caption: X-ray (rear view) of the pelvis of an adult woman, showing osteoarthritis in both hip joints (bilateral). There is loss of space between the socket of the hip and the ball of each thigh-bone (femur) due to loss of cartilage, causing pain and stiffness of movement. Osteoarthritis is associated with mechanical wear of the joints. See image 2 of this patient after surgery to fit an artificial (prosthetic) hip replacement.
