[A new measurement method for the radiographic assessment of the proximal femur: the center-trochanter distance].

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We developed a new method --measuring the perpendicular distance between the center of the femur head and the tip of the trochanter-- for radiographic assessment of the proximal femur. METHODS The "center-trochanter distance" (CTD) refers to the perpendicular line drawn to the femoral shaft axis between two parallel lines that pass through the… (More)
