Unformatted text preview: Sacrum (HPLS).and the lateral sacral lines Figure out L5 body rotation (list ilium on that side) PI, AS & subscripts IN, EX subscripts List sacrum or not MD/AD (assists with leg length evaluation validity as adjusting prompt) 1 line parallel to bottom of film scribed over shorter femur head This is the side of measured deficiency (amount of mm lower). Multiply ilium subscripts by 0.4 to determine amount of potential correction of MD according to expected change in femur head height.
