1. Take an x-ray.
2. Grab a ruler.
Do you trust what you see? You shouldn't and this is why. The divergent beam of an x-ray makes the anatomy appear larger because the patient is positioned between the tube and the receptor. This is called magnification and it's present in every image. The average "mag factor" of a study is from 9 to 29 percent and our community accepts this for the most part.
J2 Medical has been scaling x-rays for the better part of a decade and we've made incredible strides with Orthopedic Surgeons.
Orthopeadic templating helped further expose this major flaw in radiography because magnification is obvious when you are in a joint replacement surgery and none of the templating measurments seem to add up. This directly equates to time and money and is the easiest way to achieve better end results before templating even takes place.
