Send these forms along with plain films or digital x-rays (standing AP pelvis, and cross table lateral or frog lateral) to Dr. Rogerson for your free BHR analysis.
*Important! Outside digital films must have a marker placed by the x-ray technician in order for Dr. Rogerson to properly assess the size of your bones and determine if BHR is right for you. Please request that a marker is utilized!
