  • Measurements from X-ray Films

    Hi

    I am a graduate student of the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore),
    I am
    > working on a project to study the effects of traction forces on the
    > cervical spine.
    I have performed traction tests on cadaveric specimens at various loads and
    angles.
    A lateral radiograph was taken at each configuration.

    The problem here is to measure the anterior and posterior intervertebral
    separation radiographs accurately. I thought digitising the x-ray film would
    be a good idea since I could calculate the distances using the pixels
    location and I know the actual distance between two points on the
    radiograph. However, there is loss of information in the scanning process
    and some of the dark regions are indistinguishable from the background.

    If you have any solution to my problem, I would appreciate to hear more from
    you.

    Regards
