Rotating 3D MRI scan of a hip joint, showing moderate osteoarthritis. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint formed from the articulation of the femur (thigh bone) and the pelvis. Osteoarthritis of the hip is very common, occurring when the joint degenerates, causing friction, stiffness and pain on movement. It typically presents in medical scans as a narrowed space between the bones.
