Quantitative evaluation of angular measurements on plain radiographs in patients with slipped capital femoral epiphysis: a 3-dimensional analysis of computed tomography-based computer models of 46 femora.


BACKGROUND In cases of slipped capital femoral epiphyses (SCFE) findings on plain radiographs help to determine the further necessary course of action. In severe cases possible surgical procedures are commonly indicated and planned using angular measurements on plain radiographs to describe the extent and direction of the slip. The aim of this study was to… (More)
