Figure 1: X-ray anteroposterior view of pelvis with both hip joints showing the technique of measurement of limb length discrepancy. On the affected side, the vertical distance from a line connecting the inferior margins of the two teardrops, to the most medial margin of the lesser trochanter is measured. The same is performed on the other side, and the difference between the two distances represents the limb length discrepancy
