       - Bone Scans following THR:
       - Post Op Evaluation of THR:

- Discussion:
    - post op AP & lateral x-rays should include entire length of stem & cement mass;
    - femur and cement column are inspected carefully and compared w/ previous films for changes indicating component loosening, stem 
            failure, trochanteric problems, or infection;

- Radiographic Views:
    - Frog Leg Lateral: gives best lateral of prox portion of femoral component;
    - Cross Table Lateral:
         - for evaluation of position of acetabular component (anteversion) & status of post bone stock in posterior column & neck of ilium;
    - Weight bearing and Non Wt bearing Views:
         - may detect implant loosening;
    - Push Pull Views: to evaluate for loosening of components;
         - same as AP view of hip w/ examiner providing distraction and compression to the hip through the femur
