Abstract: Objective: To analyze the most common methods for measuring patellar height and the impact of observer experience in correlations with the other observers using digital radiography. Methods: Sixty digital radiographs of the knee in lateral view were analyzed by four observers: a physician in the second year of medical residence in orthopedics (R2); a physician in the third year of medical residence in orthopedics (R3); an orthopedic surgeon who was a specialist in knee surgery (SK); and a radiologist who was a… Show more

“…Our investigation was conducted using digital radiographs, on the basis of the study by Gracitelli et al 1 According to these authors, use of digital radiographs is becoming ever more widely disseminated. Moreover, the advantages of this radiography system in relation to the conventional technique are its speed and precision, the elimination of printing and its associated costs and the ease of image display.…”

“…Moreover, the advantages of this radiography system in relation to the conventional technique are its speed and precision, the elimination of printing and its associated costs and the ease of image display. 1 In our opinion, the most important point that these authors cited is that the x-ray doses required for digital radiography are lower: the dose is adjusted so that the image has an appropriate signal-to-noise ratio and the radiation absorbed by the patient is diminished. 1 Our thinking is that with digital images, the measurements of the anatomical points through the software become more precise.…”
