Joint problem: "interval destruction of left hip", the hip joint has suffered injury/damage to the point of destruction since the last Xray."acetabulum and femoral head", both parts of the hip joint, the pelvis socket (acetabulum), and the thigh bone (femur, femoral head), the rest of the interpretation appears to have been cut off.
