Using ultrasound in evaluation of infant’s hip development can reduce surgical procedures, hospitalization and late

presentation of developmental dysplasia of the hip DDH. The increasing incidence of DDH after ultrasound examination

is observed and published by many authors. In a prospective study, radiograph of every single ultrasonographic positive

hip in infants older than three months, was taken and analyzed in order to see whether it affects infants splintage

rate in treating DDH. In a period of 30 months, clinical and simple static ultrasonographic examinations according to

Graf were performed on 1430 consecutive infant hips in patients aged between 4 and 6 months. Sonographic positive hips

were radiographed and acetabular index AI values on simple AP radiographs were analyzed. The sonographic DDH

incidence was 51.75 per 1000 hips 51.75‰. After X-ray examination of all 74 ultrasonographic positive hips, only 44

remained abnormal and required treatment indicating a true DDH incidence of 30.77 per 1000 hips 30.77‰. The difference

in incidence per ultrasonographic and X-ray positive hips is statistically significant p
