a Bone-density mapping of 5 mm of subchdral bone in an intact right acetabulum couresy of Lubovsky et al. 2013. The highest bone density is in the superior and posterior portions of the acetabulum.

Fracture lines are marked as yellow circles and a bony defect is shown in dark blue. Permission was granted for figure utilization in this review
