Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis | Diagnosis & Tests


How can the doctor tell if my child has SCFE?

To check for stable or unstable SCFE, your doctor will want your child to get X-rays that show the pelvis and thigh area from several angles. Your doctor will then decide which tests are needed and explain each test to you.
