The Scour Test is designed to assess for hip joint pathology including arthritis, labral lesions and avascular necrosis of the femoral head.
With the patient in the supine position, flex the involved hip to 90 degrees and bring it into adduction. Apply a long access compression through the femur into the acetabulum and, while maintaining this pressure, rotate the hip internally and then externally.
Now abduct the hip, and while maintaining the downward pressure, rotate the hip internally and then externally.
The test is considered positive if at any point during the manoeuvres, the patient complains of hip or groin pain or if clicking or crepitus occurs.
This test is described with a number of variations in its procedure and is sometimes referred to as the Quadrant test.
