The article reports on musculoskeletal imaging and computer-assisted surgery. Computer-assistance in orthopedic surgery improves the accuracy and precision of the procedure but it is an integrative process. The instruments used in computer-assisted surgery have been modified in ways to make them more flexible but goals in clinical procedures should be clear and universally shared.

    The position of the cup is crucial for the overall quality of a total hip arthroplasty. A malpositioning of the cup leads to increased risk of dislocation, wear, and revision. The position of the stem influences leg length and may cause impingement and dislocation. These faults may increase with...

    Purpose: Computer-navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) improves the accuracy of component implantation. However, the final implant alignment may not match planned alignment. The hypothesis of this study is that although computer navigation improves alignment, imprecision may not be completely...

    Abstract  Dislocation remains a major complication after THA, and range of motion before impingement is important in joint stability. Variability in implant alignment affects resultant range of motion. We used a probabilistic modeling approach to assess the effects of implant...
