    Is this all the same femur?! I disagree with the labeling on the lateral proximal femur image; more specifically, the location of the Greater Trochanter. The femoral neck should be somewhat visible on a lateral proximal femur, and is not on this image. I just don't think that Femoral Neck should not be labeled in the image since it is assumed and not seen, and the area labeled "Neck" is actually the area of the Greater Trochanter. The only way Greater Trochanter could possibly be where it is currently labeled is if the femur was just a bit more lateral making the Lesser Trochanter a pinch more obvious. Right? Let me know what you think?! It is bugging me!
