  • The clavicle has a complex osteologic structure that makes morphological analysis extremely difficult. A three‐dimensional study was conducted to examine the anatomical variations and characteristics of the bone. Sixty‐eight human cadaver clavicles were dissected, CAT‐scanned, and reconstructed. An automated parameterization and correspondence shape analysis system was developed. A new length, designated as centerline (CL) length, was defined and measured. This length represents the true length… CONTINUE READING
