The BROH Femoral offset index is a new, ancillary measure on cross-sectional imaging that can be used to supplement existing indices to assess ADH. Since it is a linear measure, it is easy to calculate and has the potential of being included as another useful parameter in the CT scan evaluation of ADH. It has shown good intra- and inter-observer reliability in the current study in measuring anterior coverage of the femoral in ADH. Further studies are needed to understand how The BROH Femoral offset index can be validated as an additional measure in diagnosis and monitoring of patients with ADH.
