The anatomical parameters of hip joint will be of immense importance to orthopedicians, radiologists and prosthetists. These parameters help in designing patient specific implants and can be utilized to understand etiopathogenesis of osteoarthritis. The objective of this study is to compare acetabular diameter (AD) and acetabular depth (Depth) morphology in humans in terms of age and gender. This study was conducted with the AD and Depth measurements of 80 patients, 40 males and 40 females, over CT. Patients between the ages 20 and 40 were included in the study. Measurements were performed unilaterally, from the left side Mann-Whitney U test and Spearman Correlation Analysis were used for data analysis with IBM SPSS Statistics 22.0 for Windows. In terms of AD measured over CT images, statistically significant difference was found between males and females (p<0.05), while no difference was found in terms of Depth (p>0.05). According to the correlation analysis conducted, no statistically significant correlation was found between age and AD and Depth in males and females (p>0.05). A positive significant correlation was found between AD and Depth in males and females (p<0.05). We believe that the results of our study will contribute to studies about hip arthroplasty applications. In addition, we believe that a data base will be formed about this subject related with our region.
