Abstract A study of the automated diagnosis of luxatio coxae congenita (LCC) was performed to establish an automated screening system for hip radiographs. A specific parameter with high diagnostic accuracy was selected by the use of information theory. Pattern recognition programs were written to extract the parameter from digitized hip radiographs. Parameter measurement was performed on 10 radiographs and compared with manual measurements. Results showed good agreement with measurements obtained by specialists. This study confirms the possibilities of automated diagnosis of LCC.
