The use of biplane fluoroscopy to track bones in the foot is challenging, due to distortion, overlap and image artefact inherent in fluoroscopy systems and high speed photography. The accuracy and precision of these systems have been reported [1–4] and are presented here for our biplane fluoroscopy system.
Materials and methods
Translation: the overall RMS error was 0.066 mm, with a precision of ± 0.016 mm. Rotation: the RMS error was 0.125°. Dynamic motion: the overall RMS error was 0.126 mm, with a precision of ± 0.122 mm.
