Paper Abstract

Loosening is the number one complication of total joint replacements. A direct method of measuring small motions between the prosthetic implant and the surrounding bone would allow the surgeon to evaluate replacement surgery or activity restrictions. Single plane x-ray photogrammetry uses stainless steel markers in the bone and prosthetic implant and a control frame in order to accomplish this measurement. Testing of models representing a total hip replacement and total knee replacement has shown that displacements can be measured with a root mean square error of less than 0.2 mm.
