Sample Name: Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis (SCFE)


Description: Frontal and lateral views of the hip and pelvis.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


EXAM: Two views of the pelvis.

HISTORY: This is a patient post-surgery, 2-1/2 months. The patient has a history of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) bilaterally.

TECHNIQUE: Frontal and lateral views of the hip and pelvis were evaluated and correlated with the prior film dated MM/DD/YYYY. Lateral view of the right hip was evaluated.

FINDINGS: Frontal view of the pelvis and a lateral view of the right hip were evaluated and correlated with the patient's most recent priors dated MM/DD/YYYY. Current films reveal stable appearing post-surgical changes. Again demonstrated is a single intramedullary screw across the left femoral neck and head. There are 2 intramedullary screws through the greater trochanter of the right femur. There is a lucency along the previous screw track extending into the right femoral head and neck. There has been interval removal of cutaneous staples and/or surgical clips. These were previously seen along the lateral aspect of the right hip joint.

Deformity related to the previously described slipped capital femoral epiphysis is again seen.

IMPRESSION:
1. Stable-appearing right hip joint status-post pinning.
2. Interval removal of skin staples as described above.
