  • Cineradiography &/or videoflouroscopy

    Dear Biomech'ers,

    The Comparative Biomechanics Laboratory at Ohio University is interested
    in purchasing a cineradiography or videoflouroscopy unit for studying
    the movements of proximal limb bones (which are commonly encased by the
    skin and fascia of the torso or, in the case of turtles, by the shell)
    and vertebrae during terrestrial and arboreal locomotion in small-bodied
    animals (e.g., lizards, primitive mammals). Most of our colleagues who
    utilize "moving x-rays" have ancient cineradiography units that are no
    longer on the market. We would like some direction from the listserv
    members about:

    1. Which cineradiography/videoflouroscopy units have you used, and have
    you been satisfied with its performance?
    2. What is the sampling rate of these units?
    3. If you have evaluated the quality of the images generated
    cineradiographically versus vidoeflouroscopically, which is superior
    (and why)?

    Thanks in advance,
