Abstract: This is the fourth in a series of articles related to procedure-oriented joint anatomy. This article reviews the anatomy of the hip and its relationship to procedures in the clinical setting with or without imaging guidance. Anatomically correct axial and coronal schematics allow injections to be envisioned relative to clinically important anatomy for common hip procedures. Cross-sectional schematics for the hip were drawn as they appear in imaging projections. The levels and planes of cross section were selected to highlight important anatomic landmarks for injection. It is hoped that these schematics allow for safer and more accurate needle procedures in the knee area.
