Paper Abstract

For the past five years, we have been accumulating information on the performance of a stereoroentgenographic system developed for use in clinical medicine and first reported at the NATO Symposium on the Application of Human Biostereometrics. This system represents an adaptation of normal case coplanar stereometry and involves the use of a single emitter which is displaced in a controlled fashion between exposures. The system has been used primarily for the detection of applicance loosening and settling following the placement of total hip protheses and also for the detection of pseudorthosis following lumbo-sacral fusion. One major goal has been the development of a data acquisition and analysis system suitable for general hospital use which can be operated by technicians without specialized photogrammetric training. This report will focus on system design and on the delineation of technical problems encountered during routine clinical use of the system.
