Errors in measurement of acetabular index.

Abstract:

Errors in determining the acetabular index can be induced either by incorrectly positioning the child for radiographs or by inter- or intraobserver errors. From postmortem radiographic studies, we have determined the magnitude of these errors. The error caused by pelvic rotation is +/- 3 degrees if the obturator foramina ratio is kept within 0.5 to 2. If pelvic flexion/extension is confined to +/- 10 degrees, the error induced by flexion/extension is +/- 3 degrees. The intraobserver error was...
