Introduction: The success of total hip replacement depends on the ideal placement of both acetabular and femoral component, so having a complete awareness regarding acetabular parameters including its morphology is an important requirement for successful surgery. Materials and Methods: A hospital-based observational study was conducted on all patients in the age group of 18 years, and above submitting to the Department of Radiodiagnosis for either abdominal, lower spinal, or nonorthopedic pathology of pelvic and hip region were included in this study. Acetabular dimensions (acetabular depth [Ac.D] and acetabular width [Ac.W]) were evaluated with the help of digital scale of computed tomography console room monitor. Results: The findings from the current study show that the Ac.D and Ac.W in the study population was 14.6 and 50.2 mm, respectively. The study shows no side-to-side difference in values. However, it was observed that values were larger in men as compared to women in the study population. Conclusions: There is a need to develop templates for arthroplasty which are sex specific and not universal.
