Dear biomch-l members

I am looking for a reliable and accurate manual or
computer-assisted technique for measuring femoral anteversion using data
deriving from CT and/or conventional X-ray scans.

I am particularly interested in methods which have been validated
through comparison with intraoperative or post-mortem direct
measurements. I would also like to know where to retrieve information on
normal and pathological value ranges for this parameter. One more
question: does anybody have the complete reference to the paper(s) in
which Reikerås proposes his approach?

Anyone's contribution will be greatly appreciated. I will as usual
post a summary of replies.
