Failed hip replacement. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of a total hip replacement (solid white) in a 70-year-old patient. This scan shows that the orthopaedic cement, which holds the implanted socket (white crescent) into the acetabular cup (centre left) of the pelvic bone, has degraded leading to the loosening of the implant.
