ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of radiographs in identifying incomplete atypical femoral fractures and to determine interobserver and intra-observer reliability.Materials and methodsAnterior–posterior and lateral radiographs of 10 femurs with incomplete atypical femoral fractures confirmed using bone scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging, and 40 femurs without incomplete atypical femoral fractures confirmed using bone scintigraphy, were… CONTINUE READING
