Patient mit Coxarthrose
Die heute bei uns angefertigte Rippsteinaufnahme zur groben Beurteilung der Antetorsion zeigt, dass diese noch vermindert ist.

Rippstein (Muller) position
Explanation:
May be this is what the reference is to...

Frontal pelvic x-ray was performed with the patient positioned in
dorsal decubitus, with parallel extended thighs and knees flexed
in 90o, at the edge of the x-ray table (Figure 3).
In order to determine the femoral neck anteversion, the ** Rippstein-
Müller ** position was used: hips remained flexed at 90o, with abduc-
tion of 15o and legs strictly in parallel from each other and to the
plane of exam table. Such parallelism is important, as well as the
vertical position of the femur in a perpendicular plane to the table,
because it was from this plane that the projection of the posterior
surface of the femoral condyles appeared in parallel to the x-ray
lower edge(9). In order to facilitate, and in order to obtain standard-
ized x-rays, a proper instrument was used, which maintained the
thighs and legs angles steady. That instrument was built using a
cursor to adjust variable distances of the hips, as well as to adjust
the length of the thighs (Figures 4a and 4b).
The collection provided the following data: gender; age; race;
ROR; RIR; ROR+RIR; RA; LOR; LIR; LOR+LIR, and; LA.
For the statistical analysis, the verification on data distribution
normality or abnormality was firstly performed by the proof “An
analysis of variance test for normality”. Such test indicated that
the distribution did not comply with normality curve.
In view of those results, nonparametric methods were applied.
With the purpose of checking the existence or not of significant
correlations among rotation measurements and anteversion
angles, the Spearman’s Correlation Coefficient by Posts was
applied to the data.
With the purpose of comparing inward and outward rotations in
the same side, the Wilcoxon test was applied to the values series,
combined in pairs.

Rippstein appears to be the name of the ** originator ** of the method and hence, as Ingeborg mentioned, the particular type of X-ray.

I see this on Google as ** Rippstein-Müller ** position.
