The diagnosis of hip OA starts with a complete history and physical examination by your doctor. X-rays will be required to determine the extent of the joint damage and can also help the doctor find a possible cause for it.
Other tests may be required if there is reason to believe that other conditions are contributing to the degenerative process. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be necessary to determine whether your hip condition is from problems with AVN. Blood tests may be required to rule out other forms of arthritis or infection in the hip.
