Abstract

This work deals with a combined hardware and software approach to the evaluation of bone ingrowth for cement and cementless fixation in knee prosthesis. We have digitized x-ray images of some clinical cases related to different knee prostheses solutions considering a follow-up of 3-5 years after the operation. The digitized data are numerically processed in order to obtain a bone density evaluation as a function of the kind of prosthesis allowing to compare the data during the follow-up. The final goal is to realize a photometric sensor to be used on conventional x-ray images as a decisional support for the orthopedic staff.
