It is difficult to obtain high resolution image data of human diarthrodial joints. Therefore, we have made CT arthrogram image datasets available from the subjects included in our finite element analysis of cartilage contact stresses for three study groups: Normal hip, retroverted acetabula, and traditional acetabular dysplasia. We hope that the availability of these image datasets will assist other investigators who wish to study the articular cartilage and/or mechanics of the human hip joint.
