BIOMCH-L subscribers,

I am interested in measuring the degree of rotation and angulation of
deformed avian tibias. Although mechanical devices that our lab has
designed have been useful, repeatability from operator to another is
lacking. Other "mechanical" devices that we found in the literature also
have large variations from operator to operator. Can anyone point me toward
techniques that have worked in similar research? As always, funding has
limited so I am interested in methods that are inexpensive. While
colleagues have a CT scanner and camera imaging systems that I can use, the
cost per image will eat my budget up. Thanks for you help.
