Determining Measurement Error for Bohler's Angle and the Effect of X-Ray Obliquity on Accuracy.

BACKGROUND Bohler's angle (BA) is the most commonly utilized radiographic measurement in the study of calcaneus fractures and has been shown to be prognostic in nature. Therefore, it is critical that the measurement of BA be accurate as both therapeutic and prognostic information relies on it. Oblique lateral radiographs can be a cause of error in BA… CONTINUE READING
