Accuracy and reproducibility of computer-assisted measurement of polyethylene wear in knee arthroplasty.

Abstract

When using computer-assisted methods to evaluate polyethylene wear in knee arthroplasty (TKA), variations in the inclination of the X-ray beam and lack of standard calibration may affect accuracy and reproducibility. To address these issues, we evaluated the polyethylene thickness of unimplanted specimens of known dimensions using the Imagika software… (More)
