Abstract
In this paper, the accuracy and precision of RSA analysis using a GE InnovaTM 4100 digital flat panel and a Siemens Multistar x-ray image intensifier (XRII) were evaluated and compared with that of a conventional film-screen system, in order to explore the possibility of real-time kinematic and dynamic RSA study. A phantom, having two rigid body segments with no movement, was constructed and imaged by the digital flat panel, XRII and conventional screen-film systems, respectively. The acquired images were measured and motions were derived. The mean and standard deviation of the repeated results were analyzed to determine the accuracy and precision, respectively. Comparing all three axes, the lowest rotational accuracy and precision were 0.008 ± 0.011°, 0.013 ± 0.015° and 0.006 ± 0.05° while the lowest translational accuracy and precision were 25 ± 28 mm, 17 ± 37 mm and 4 ± 6 mm for the film-screen, XRII and digital flat panel, respectively. The evaluation of the accuracy and precision of the RSA in this study confirms its place as a highly accurate method. The study shows that both digital flat panel and XRII systems have potential application to the kinematics and dynamics joint study.
