Özet

Objectives-Cerebral palsy (CP) increases the risk of hip displacement during childhood. Abnormal hip muscle forces have been proposed as the predisposing factors. In CP, the amount of hip displacement is commonly evaluated by the Reimers hip migration index (MI) on an anteroposterior pelvic radiograph. To the best of our knowledge, the association between the elasticity of hip muscles measured by shear wave elastography and the MI has not been studied yet. Herein, we aimed to analyze the correlation between the elasticity of hip muscles and the MI.
