Roentgen stereophotogrammetry. Review of orthopedic applications.

Author information

  • Umeå University Hospital Department of Orthopedics, Sweden.

Abstract

Roentgen stereophotogrammetry is based on radiographic examinations of calibration cages and object markers implanted in the skeleton. Accurate measurements of radiographs and computer-assisted calculations can provide a three-dimensional motion analysis. Since its introduction 15 years ago, roentgen stereophotogrammetry has found an increasing number of orthopedic applications, which are reviewed here: growth, prosthetic fixation, joint kinematics and stability, fracture stability, and the healing course of spinal fusion and pelvic and tibial osteotomies.
