The proximal part of the radius has a complex shape and dimension that cannot be precisely determined by standard roentgenogram for real three-dimensional anatomical shape which is important for prosthesis design. This study presents a method by which computer tomography (CT) images are combined with the reverse engineering technique to obtain and analyse the three-dimensional inner and outer geometry of the proximal radius. The three-dimensional models were reconstructed from CT images… CONTINUE READING
