Abstract High resolution ultrasound has gained increasing popularity over conventional x- rays as an aid in the diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of hip. Technical advances have improved image quality. This study was conducted to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of high resolution ultrasound in diagnosing congenital developmental dysplasia. Seven hundred neonatal hips (both sides) were screened for developmental dysplasia using high end ultrasound machines with a 10 – 12 Mhz high frequency linear array transducer. High resolution ultrasound was found to be very useful in detecting developmental dysplasia of hip at very early stages thus preventing deformity of hips.

Keywords: Developmental dysplasia, high resolution ultrasound, neonatal hip.
