Oxland Department of Mechanical Engineering It has been well recognized that the scapula and the humerus work in concert to enable the shoulder joint to achieve its high mobility in three-dimensions. Pathologies such as impingement and instability are focused at the glenohumeral junction between the two bones. Other authors have attempted to measure scapulothoracic and scapulohumeral rhythms as a means of better understanding the shoulder joint. However, at present, the inability to practically measure scapular kinematics in a clinical setting constitutes a significant problem in the rehabilitation of shoulder pathologies. This thesis addresses the issue of measuring three-dimensional scapular kinematics non-invasively. A novel method using a grid of skin surface markers was developed. The method was found to show promising results in a pilot study and a pre-clinical test on a cadaver. An accuracy of better than 5° was achieved for all three cardan angles used to describe changes in scapular attitudes. The method quantified the regional variations encountered with surface markers and identified the optimal regions for measurement. Additionally, a prototype method utilizing two-dimensional Fourier analysis was investigated to measure scapular upward rotation through image analysis of surface features. The results were not conclusive but merit further investigation. The gold standard used to assess accuracy of the non-invasive method was roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA). The accuracy of the RSA system was investigated with computer simulations and benchtop analyses. System accuracy rangedfrom0.21-mm to 0.67-mm for reconstruction of marker coordinates, from 0.23mm to 0.86-mm for translation, and from 0.19° to 1.05° for rotations. The stereophotogrammetric calibration method was an important factor in the resultant accuracy. The accuracy was also affected by the reconstruction algorithm used. Direct Linear Transformation (DLT) was found more favorable than traditional RSA methods described by Selvik. Finally, low x-ray scanning resolution (150-ppi) was a principal hardware limitation contributing to lower accuracy. This thesis has demonstrated a scapular measurement technique and presented some novel ideas that should contribute to the long-term development of a clinically practical, non-invasive, accurate method for measuring human scapular kinematics. u  TABLE OF CONTENTS  Abstract  "  Table of Contents  "»  List of Tables  vii  List of Figures  VIM  Acknowledgements  xi  Dedication  xii  Chapter 1 Introduction  1  1.1  The Human Shoulder 1.1.1 Skeletal & Muscular Anatomy  1.2  Glenohumeral Joint Pathologies 1.2.1 Labral Damage and Instability 1.2.2 Cuff Damage and Impingement 1.2.3 Diagnosis and Rehabilitation - The Role of Scapular Measurement 1.2.4 Literature on Scapular Motion  1.3 1.4  1 1  Motivation, Obj ective & Scope  5 5 8 10 14 18  Overall Study Design 1.4.1 Requirements 1.4.2 Questions 1.4.3 Measurement Methods - RSA & Skin Markers  19 19 19 20  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  21  2.1  Objective  21  2.2  Methods  21  2.3  Results  23  2.4  Discussion  28  2.5  Conclusion  30  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  32  3.1  Stereophotogrammetric Preliminaries  32  3.2  Overview of Stereophotogrammetric Analysis Methodologies  33  3.3  Direct Linear Transformation  3.4  Selvik's Method for R S A  41  3.5  Selvik's Methodology  42  3.6  Discussion o f D L T and Selvik's Method  44  _36  in  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations 4.1  45  Part I - Calibration Cage and Analysis Algorithm  46  4.1.1 Part I - Objective 4.1.2 Part I - Methods R S A Graphic User Interface (RSAGUI) Simulated Calibration Cages and Object Simulation Trials 4.1.3 Part I - Results 4.1.4 Part I - Discussion 4.1.5 Part I - Conclusions  4.2  46 47 47 49 52 53 56 63  Part II - Influence of Parameters 4.2.1 4.2.2 4.2.3 4.2.4 4.2.5  4.3  Part Part Part Part Part  II II II II II -  63  Objective Methods Results Discussion Conclusions  63 64 65 68 69  RSA Simulation Conclusions  69  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies 5.1  70  Measurement Accuracy 5.1.1 5.1.2 5.1.3 5.1.4 5.1.5  5.2  70  Objective Methods Results Discussion Conclusion  ;  RSA Reconstruction Accuracy 5.2.1 5.2.2 5.2.3 5.2.4 5.2.5  5.3  77  Objective Methods Results Discussion Conclusion  77 77 80 82 83  RSA Translation Accuracy 5.3.1 5.3.2 5.3.3 5.3.4 5.3.5  5.4  5.5  84  Objective Methods Results Discussion Conclusion  84 84 89 92 93  RSA Rotational Accuracy 5.4.1 5.4.2 5.4.3 5.4.4 5.4.5  71 71 72 75 76  93  Objective Methods Results Discussion Conclusion  93 93 95 96 97  Summary Conclusions for RSA Accuracy Studies  98  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver 6.1  Objective  99 99  iv  6.2  Methods  99  6.3  Results  107  6.4  Discussion  117  6.5  Conclusions  121  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  122  7A  Background  122  7.2  Objective  131  7.3  Methods  131  7.4  Results  133  7.5  Discussion  136  7.6  Conclusions  137  Chapter 8 Summary, Future Work & Recommendations  138  8.1  Summary  138  8.2  Future Work & Recommendations  140  Appendix A X-Ray Radiography  142  A.1 General X-Ray Setup  142  A.2 Control of Image Quality  143  A.2.1 A.2.2 A.2.3  Density and Contrast kV mAs  143 143 144  A. 3 Control of Dose A.3.1 A.3.2 A.3.3 A.3.4 A . 3.5  144  Half-Value Layer (HVL) Filtration Entrance Skin Exposure Effective Dose Methods of Determining Effective Dose  Appendix B RSA GUI-Matlab Code  144 144 145 145 145  148  B. 1 RSAGUI_CB  148  B.2 Sim3DDLT  182  B.3 SimSelvik  183  B.4 Script3DDLT  185  B.5 ScriptSelvik  186  B.6 Utilities  189  B. 6.1 B.6.2 B.6.3 B.6.4  RSAC Az_cb El_cb AddPts2D  189 191 191 192  v  B.6.5 B.6.6 B.6.7 B.6.8 B.6.9 B.6.10 B.6.11 B.6.12 B. 6.13  AddPts3D AddLns3D AddPatch3D Delimit ParseDelimited MultHomogeneous Xpose Planelntercept Lineslntercept  193 193 194 195 195 196 196 197 198  Appendix C RSA Accuracy - Matlab Code C . l Digital Measurement Accuracy C. 1.1 AccuracyTst C.1.2 MkXray C.l.3 GenCentre • C.1.4 Psphere  :  C . 2 Benchtop Accuracy Test C.2.1 DOERCagelO C.2.2 Tlocal C. 2.3 csv2xry  200 200 200 201 203 205 206 206 206 208  Appendix D Cadaver Kinematics - Supplementary Results D. l Humeral D. 1.1 Rz D. 1.2 Ry D. 1.3 Rx -  Elevation Results Scapular Upward Rotation Scapular Internal/External Rotation Scapular Tipping  D. 2 Retraction Results D.2.1 Rz - Scapular Upward Rotation D.2.2 Ry - Scapular internal/external rotation D.2.3 R x - Scapular Tipping  209 210 210 217 221 225 225 230 235  Appendix E Cadaver Kinematics - Matlab Code  240  E. l  matchStereoPts  240  E.2  assignPts  241  E.3  solveKin  242  E.4  rnkl  244  E.5  defMarkers  245  Appendix F Slip Estimation with Fourier Analysis - Matlab Code  247  F. l  solveFFT  247  F.2  convertSP  252  F.3  defSP  253  Reference List  254  vi  LIST OF TABLES  Number  Page  Table I-I: Manual Tests Table 1-2: UCLA Rating Scale Table 1-3: American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Scale Table 2-1: Comparison of 3-D rotations Table 3-1: Stereophotogrammetric Parameters Table 4-1: Comparison of Methods Table 5-1: Measurement Accuracy Results .

The scapula, humerus and clavicle are the three primary bones forming the shoulder (Figure 1-1). The clavicle serves to transfer load from the arm to the thorax and is a pivot point at which the scapula rotates.  The anatomy of the  shoulder is such that humeral elevation, relative to the scapula, is restricted to less than 90°.  This is due to abutment of the greater tuberosity of the humerus and the  coracoacriomial arch that lies superior to the glenoid cavity. Yet the arm is able to elevate well above 90° in normal individuals. The reason is that the scapula is also free to move and the total elevation of the arm is the combined effect of humeral motion with respect to the scapula, and the scapular motion with respect to the thorax. This project is focused on measuring this latter motion. The junction between the humeral head and the scapula's glenoid process is the glenohumeral joint. This, however, is not the only joint in the shoulder. The shoulder joint is more aptly named the shoulder joint complex (SJC) because it actually consists of four joints.  The acromioclavicular joint refers to the articulation between the  acromion process of the scapula and the clavicle. The sternoclavicular joint denotes the articulation between the clavicle and the sternum. Finally, the scapulothoracic joint  ' The nervous and vascular systems in the shoulder are not directly related to this thesis and have thus been omitted for brevity.  1  Chapter 1 Introduction  refers to a virtual joint between the scapular body and the thoracic wall along which the scapula translates.

Diagrams are from Anderson.  2  5  Chapter 1 Introduction  Following the skeletal anatomy, the muscular structures in the shoulder link the scapula and the humerus to mobilize the shoulder through a huge range of motion. The scapula is free to move in three dimensions and is entirely stabilized by muscular structures. Figure 1-2 shows the attachments of these structures. They include the rhomboids, levator scapulae, trapezius, and serratus anterior. The humerus is linked to the scapula at the glenohumeral joint via the rotator cuff muscles. The cuff consists of subscapuiaris, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor (Figure 1-3). The rotator cuff functions to mobilize the humerus and to stabilize the glenohumeral joint. The cuff muscles pull the humeral head into the socket formed by the labrum (discussed next) and glenoid fossa. The joint remains stable throughout motion as long as the humeral head is firmly centred and cradled within the deep socket.

Diagrams were modified from Anderson. 5  Two other stabilizing features are critical in shoulder mechanics. These are the glenoid labrum and the coracoacromial arch. The glenoid labrum is a wedge-shaped fibrous structure that surrounds the shallow glenoid cavity thus forming a deep, yet soft, socket in which the humeral head resides (Figure 1-4). In this way, stability is provided while maintaining high mobility. The coracoacromial arch consists of the acromion, coracoid  3  Chapter I Introduction  process and coracoacromial ligament (Figure 1-4). It acts to contain the humeral head during elevation thus preventing superior migration.  Figure 1-3:  The Rotator Cuff Four muscles comprise the rotator cuff. Subscapularis attaches from the anterior o f the scapula to the lesser tubercle o f the humerus. Supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor originate on the posterior surface o f the scapula and attach to the greater tuberosity o f the humerus. Diagrams were modified from Anderson and B l e v i n s . 5 1 0  Finally, although it does not mobilize the glenohumeral joint, the long head of biceps also deserves mention. Its tendon attaches to the superior rim of the glenoid and labrum. It is under high tension because it is a powerful flexor of the forearm. It traverses the glenohumeral joint and consequently is often damaged in glenohumeral injuries.  4  Chapter 1 Introduction  Figure 1-4:  The Glenoid Left: Lateral view o f the scapula showing the glenoid fossa. The glenoid is a shallow cup much smaller than the humeral head. It provides little stability hence affording a high range o f motion to the humerus. Diagram was modified from Anderson. Right: Lateral view o f scapula showing the labrum which surrounds the glenoid. The labrum deepens the socket thus providing stability while still allowing a high range of motion. Diagram was modified from Pettrone. 5  72  1.2  Glenohumeral Joint Pathologies  The most fundamental motive for developing a method to measure scapular motion is to assist in the treatment of shoulder pathologies. This section focuses on pathologies at the glenohumeral joint where the scapula interfaces with the humerus. In particular, damage to the glenoid labrum and rotator cuff will be discussed. 1.2.1  Labral Damage and Instability  The role of the glenoid labrum in pathology is still controversial since labral lesions have been observed in many shoulders exhibiting normal function. '  3 71  However, the  vast majority of authors agree that there is a strong association between labral lesions and instability. ' '  3 69 71  5  Chapter 1 Introduction  The location of labral tears may be anterior, posterior, superior or inferior. By far the most common pathology is damage to the superior labrum. These "SLAP" (superior 72  labrum anterior and posterior) lesions may be further classified into four types (Figure 1-5). Type I lesions involve fraying of the superior labrum. Type II lesions are similar to type I, however the superior labrum and biceps tendon are stripped off the glenoid rim. Type III lesions involve a vertical tear through the superior labrum. The fragment often displaces into the joint resulting in mechanical impingement. In a type III lesion, the biceps tendon is intact. A type IV lesion is similar to a type III lesion, except it includes tearing of the biceps tendon.  Figure 1-5: S L A P Lesions I) superior labral fraying, II) superior labrum and biceps tendon stripped off glenoid rim, III) vertical tear with fragment displaced into the joint; biceps tendon still intact, I V ) tearing of biceps tendon. Diagrams are from Warner & F u . 90  6  Chapter 1 Introduction  Several factors are usually considered in classifying instability.  These are:  1. direction of instability (anterior, posterior or multidirectional) 2. degree of instability (subluxation, dislocation) 3. etiology (traumatic, atraumatic, overuse) 4. timing (acute, recurrent, fixed) Figure 1-6 shows the Hospital for Special Surgery grading system. As described by Tomlinson and Glousman, a 1+ laxity indicates the examiner can translate the humeral head farther than the contralateral shoulder. A 2+ score indicates the examiner can subluxate the humeral head over the glenoid rim. A 3+ laxity indicates the examiner can lock the humeral head over the glenoid rim.  Figure 1-6: Hospital for Special Surgery Instability Grading Diagrams are from Altchek, Warren et al. 3  Even moderate instability may cause progressive degeneration over time. An unstable glenohumeral joint may cause excessive tension on the rotator cuff muscles which causes them to tear. Payne et al. have discussed how primary instability may be the cause of secondary Bankart lesions (anterior labral lesions). Alternatively, primary cuff and/or labral damage may result in secondary joint instability. Of particular clinical significance are SLAP lesions and/or damage to the supraspinatus that result in excessive superior migration of the humeral head. The migration causes impingement of the supraspinatus as described in section 1.2.2. Superior migration may also result in degeneration of the articulating surface on the humeral head.  7  Defects on the  Chapter 1 Introduction  articulating surface, typically caused during dislocation, are refered to as Hill-Sachs lesions. 1.2.2 Cuff Damage and Impingement Similar to labral lesions, it has been reported from cadaver studies that 72% of all 1  rotator cuff tears are asymptomatic.  0  Burkhart found that normal shoulder function is  possible even with massive (greater than 5-cm) rotator cuff tears as long as the muscles were balanced. It is not only damage to the tissue, but also its effect on the relative 60  motion between the humerus and scapula that result in pain and abnormal function. Nevertheless, rotator cuff pathology is a significant problem particularly in overhead athletes. It has been reported that 66% of elite swimmers, 57% of baseball players, and 44% of college volleyball players all suffer from shoulder pathology related to the rotator cuff.  7 2  Of the four cuff muscles, supraspinatus is the most commonly torn.  12  Supraspinatus is  a relatively weak muscle hence its function is easily compromised through overuse. Its anatomic position, traversing the glenohumeral joint superiorly, makes it easily susceptible to impingement during abduction.  During overhead abduction,  supraspinatus performs a critical function of keeping the humeral head centred on the glenoid. This prevents superior migration and potential impingement of cuff and labral fragments between the greater tuberosity of the humerus and the superior structures (acromion and coracoacromial ligament). To exacerbate the pathology, damage to the rotator cuff has been found to not heal well. This has been attributed to the sparse vascular supply on the articular side. '  12 55  Impingement results in pain during arm elevation and is the most obvious symptom of patients with shoulder pathology. Impingement typically refers to the trapping of the supraspinatus between the greater tuberosity and the superior structures (acromion and coracoacromial ligament) during elevation. In 1972 Neer published a study where he showed cuff contact with the anterior aspect of the acromion resulting in spurs causing  8  Chapter 1 Introduction  impingement.  Bigliani added to these findings and classified the morphology of the  acromion into three types (Figure 1-7). A type II or III acromion results in a smaller subacromial space contributing to impingement (Figure 1-8).  Figure 1-8: Reduced Subacromial Space In type II and II acromions, the reduction in subacromial space contributes to impingement of supraspinatus tendon. Diagrams are from Marks et al. 57  Neer classified impingement into three stages.  91  Stage I involved hemorrhage and  edema. Stage II impingement was indicated by fibrosis and tendonitis of the cuff muscles. Finally, stage III impingement involves tearing of the rotator cuff.  9  Chapter 1 Introduction  1.2.3 Diagnosis and Rehabilitation — The Role of Scapular Measurement Labral and cuff tears need not appear independently.  A labral tear may lead to  instability that causes a subsequent cuff lesion. Conversely, damage to cuff muscles may cause superior migration of the humeral head resulting in a labral tear. The mechanics of injury may be even more complex. Figure 1-9 shows a state transition diagram of glenohumeral joint pathology. Tracing these pathways shows that a wide range of hypothetical cascading mechanisms of injury are possible. The inability to reliably diagnose the mechanism of injury presents challenges for appropriate identification of optimal surgical procedures and analysis of the outcomes. ' ' ' One 6 19 58 82  of the problems with current diagnostic techniques, pre- and post-op, involves the inability to accurately track the motion of the scapula.  Figure 1-9:  State Transition Diagram of Glenohumeral Pathology Beginning at the start, no pathology, the arrows trace the possible routes of pathologic degeneration. A simple case may be the isolated presence of a small labral tear. The arrow loops back to the same state indicating the pathology does not progress. Frequently, the pathology progresses - the tear follows the arrow to instability. In severe cases, labral tearing, cuff tearing, instability and impingement may all be present. The pathway to arrive at this state is often ambiguous thus contributing to the difficulty in diagnosing the underlying causes of pathology.  A number of tools are used in the diagnosis of labral and rotator cuff tears. In terms of medical imaging, MRI is the primary modality of choice.  19  Large tears are reliably  identifiable with modern MRI systems. However, MRI is still unreliable in detecting  10  Chapter 1 Introduction  partial and small tears. Ultrasound has also been used for detecting soft tissue damage but its reliability is generally regarded as poor. Lateral radiographs are useful in assessing occlusion of the subacromial space. Insufficient space beneath the acromion contributes to impingement of the supraspinatus. A wide variety of manual tests exist for assessing glenohumeral pathology.  Some  common tests are listed in Table i_i _ ' > ' 3 10  Test Shrug sign Lift-off test Relocation test  Apprehension test  55 58  Significance  Details  Excessive scapular elevation & rotation Supraspinatus pathology during elevation Inability to actively lift internally rotated arm Subscapuiaris pathology Reduction of pain with posteriorly directed Anterior laxity force on abducted, externally rotated shoulder arm abducted at 90°, fully externally rotated, Anterior laxity & anteriorly directed force - patient senses imminent dislocation Table 1-1: Manual Tests Adapted from Blevins. 10  In addition to imaging and manual tests, clinical test scores are useful tools for assessing patients before and after surgery. The most commonly used score is the 12  University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) rating scale (Table 1-2).  The  maximum score in this scale is 35 points. A score of 34 or 35 is rated as excellent. A score between 28 and 33 is considered good. A score between 21 and 27 is fair. A score below 21 points is poor. The UCLA scale is not used in all studies. There are several deficiencies in the rating system. First, active flexion to 150° is rated as 5/5.  This leaves 30° of elevation  unaccounted for in the score. Second, the scale is for overall shoulder function and 12  some authors feel it is not specific enough for rotator cuff pathology.  Third,  satisfaction is a highly subjective measure and accounts for 5 points in the 35-point scale. These problems limit the objectivity of the UCLA rating.  11  Chapter 1 Introduction  Points  Items Pain Present always and unbearable; strong medication needed frequently Present always but bearable; strong medication needed occasionally None or little at rest; present during light activities; salicylates needed frequently Present during heavy or particular activities only; salicylates needed occasionally Occasional and slight None Function Unable to use limb Only light activities possible Able to do light housework and most activities of daily living Most housework, shopping, and driving possible; able to brush hair and to dress and undress, including fastening of brassiere Slight restriction only; able to work above shoulder level Normal activities Active flexion > 150°  1 2 4 6 8 10  1 2 4 6 8 10  5 4 3 2 1 0  121°-150° 9 1 ° - 120° 46°-90° 30°-45° <30° Strength of flexion (on manual muscle-testing) Grade 5 Grade 4 Grade 3  5 4  Grade 2  3 2  Grade 1 Grade 0  1 0  Satisfaction of patient 5 0  Satisfied and better Not satisfied and worse Table 1-2:  U C L A Rating Scale Adapted from Budoff et a l .  12  12  Chapter 1 Introduction  The shoulder score index of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons is another commonly used system (Table 1-3).

Rehabilitation programs generally consist of strengthening exercises for the scapular stabilizers (trapezius, serratus anterior, rhomboids, levator scapulae) and the rotator cuff.  The  majority of exercises are performed in the scapular plane or in forward elevation. Exercises in the coronal plane are avoided since this is generally not the plane of  13  Chapter 1 Introduction  motion for most activities.  In addition, this plane of motion often results in  impingement and excessive loads to the rotator cuff. Although it is acknowledged that the scapula and humerus function in concert to produce the overall motion of the shoulder joint, the inability to practically measure scapular motion during rehabilitation has been a barrier to the development of scapular rehabilitation regimes more complex and specific than "overall strengthening". Ice and analgesics are used to control pain. If response is slow, steroid injections may be employed to help with the strengthening of the muscles. Only on the failure of rehabilitation is surgical intervention explored. 1.2.4 Literature on Scapular Motion The significance of scapular motion as indicated by the anatomy and demonstrated through pathology has been studied by various authors for over a hundred years. It is generally recognized that it was Cathcart in 1886 who first articulated the synchronization of the scapula and humerus in achieving overall arm elevation. ' '  4 7 53  It  was Codman in 1934 that coined the term scapulohumeral rhythm to describe the consistent relationship between scapular and humeral motion that contributes to overall arm elevation. Pvhythm has since become the focus of numerous investigations into the motion of the shoulder joint complex. The most often referenced work in describing scapular kinematics is that of Inman, Saunders and Abbott in 1944. Their paper was a comprehensive discussion of the 40  shoulder joint complex. They used x-rays (two-dimensional) to study scapulohumeral rhythm. From 0° to 30° of arm elevation in the coronal plane, there was no identifiable relationship between the scapula and humerus and hence termed this portion of elevation the setting phase. From 30° to 170° of arm elevation, they reported the oftenquoted 2:1 ratio of glenohumeral to scapulothoracic rotation. In 1966 Freedman and Munro studied fifty-two shoulders by x-raying them at 30° anterior to the coronal plane.  21  This was defined as the "scapular plane" and has  14  Chapter 1 Introduction  become the standard in scapular motion analysis; They were the first authors found in the literature to use the orientation of the glenoid cavity (in two dimensions) to describe the scapula's orientation. They found a wide confidence interval when performing regression analysis on the shoulder rhythm. This indicates that there is a high variability of shoulder rhythm across subjects. They did not report a setting phase but instead reported a 3:2 glenohumeral to scapulothoracic ratio over the entire range of motion. In 1976, Poppen and Walker published another two-dimensional x-ray study on the shoulder.  73  They were the first found in the literature to analyze the instantaneous  centre of rotation (ICR) and excursion of the humeral head in shoulder kinematics. They found that an ICR greater than 10-mmfromthe ball centre of the humeral head was indicative of abnormal shoulder function. In addition, they reported pathologic excursions on the order of 3-mm. They were not able to relate the excursion results to instability. They were also the first to show, at least qualitatively, that the scapula did not move in a flat plane but also "tipped" out of plane during elevation. Since these early "classical studies", there has been a move towards three-dimensional analysis to gain a more complete understanding of scapular motion. In 1991 Hogfors' group published a study using roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA) to measure shoulder kinematics in three dimensions.  33  They advocated the use of a more  general definition of shoulder rhythm. They felt that shoulder rhythm is a consistent relationship between the humerus and scapula during arbitrary arm motions rather than strictly elevation which had been used in the past. To accomplish this, they used RSA while three subjects elevated their arms to 30° and mobilized the arm in a conical motion about a lateral axis.  They used polynomial expressions to describe the  relationship between the humerus and scapula. The expressions were then used to predict hypothetical scapulohumeral rhythm in elevation. The simulated results were comparable to that reported by Inman and others throughout the years. Although the results were not compelling, the concept of a general definition for rhythm and the use  15  Chapter I Introduction  of RSA for measuring highly accurate three-dimensional shoulder kinematics were found to be important benchmarks in their study. In 1998 McQuade used a single transmitter placed on the flat portion of the acromion to measure scapular motion. By comparing with x-rays, their group addressed the issue 59  of skin slippage. Although the x-rays were only two-dimensional, they reported skin slippage on the scapula to be 4.2-mm and on the humerus to be 3.1-mm. In recent years several investigators have gone to surface palpation and digitization of scapular features to track its motion. ' '  53 54 61  Lukasiewicz's group found a high  repeatability (intraclass correlation coefficients ranging from 0.88 to 0.99) in identifying scapular features. They used this technique to compare an impingement versus a non-impingement group. They measured posterior tilt as the angle between the vector passing through C7 and T7, and a vector passing through the inferior angle and the root of the scapular spine. As the inferior angle moves anteriorly, posterior tilt increases.  They found significantly less posterior tilt of the scapula for patients  suffering from impingement.  In addition, the impingement group also had greater  superior translation of the scapula although the difference was not significant with the patients' contralateral side. Upward rotation and internal rotation of the scapula was not found to be significantly different between the groups. A current paper by Karduna, accepted for publication but as yet unreleased, compares non-invasive skin marker methods against bone pins drilled into the scapula  4 2  One  skin marker method, the acromion tracker, uses a single transmitter placed on the acromion region similar to the method used by McQuade. The other uses a jig that contacts the skin at the mid-spine of the scapula and the acromion. The jig, or scapular tracker, has essentially two components. The medial portion is a hinge that conforms to the scapular spine. The lateral component is an adjustable footpad that contacts the acromion region. They found a high discrepancy between the skin and bone markers at high humeral elevations. For upward rotation, the scapular tracker underestimated the  16  Chapter 1 Introduction  rotation whereas the acromion tracker overestimated the rotation. The RMS errors reported for the scapular tracker in measuring upward rotation, internal/external rotation, and scapular tipping were 8.0°, 3.2°, and 4.7° respectively. In summary, the literature shows that the problem of tracking the scapula in a clinically practical sense remains unresolved. With the exception of Karduna, there has been an overall lack of gold standard accuracy validation. Only Freedman et al. and Poppen et al. have placed the scapular coordinate system at the site of pathologic pain - the glenohumeral interface.  There has been a clear move towards three-dimensional  scapular motion measurement, not only because it has been shown scapular motion is non-planar, but moreover, the out of plane motions such as insufficient scapular tipping has been related to pathologies such as impingement.  Although scapulohumeral  rhythm in elevation is a clear starting point, it is recognized that there is a high variability across subjects and hence other parameters should be considered. Among these are a more general notion of shoulder rhythm, the instantaneous centre of rotation and humeral head excursion. The latter two have received little attention although they are at the critical site of pathology. Finally, the move towards non-invasive surface skin methods has been a clear trend as it is recognized that the method to measure scapular motion must eventually be applied clinically if it is to have any impact in aiding the rehabilitation of shoulder pathology.  17  Chapter 1 Introduction  1.3  Motivation, Objective & Scope  The scapula, along with the humerus and clavicle are the three bones which comprise the human shoulder joint complex (SJC). The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the human body. Pathology of this joint results in the compromise of this high range of motion. There is currently a great deal of controversy regarding the mechanics of shoulder pathology, its proper diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Motivation Understanding scapular motion is essential in the overall understanding and treatment of pathologies affecting the shoulder joint complex. Clinically, in a rehabilitation setting, there is no practical method to reliably quantify three-dimensional scapular motion. This lack of quantitative information contributes to the variability between patient groups in clinical studies. The development of a method to clinically measure scapular motion in a large patient group would help answer a vast array of questions regarding shoulder mechanics, the effects of surgery, and the impact of rehabilitation regimes. Objective The objectives of this thesis project are to: 1. develop a non-invasive, clinically practical, method for measuring scapular kinematics 2. compare the new method to a gold standard for measuring scapular kinematics 3. identify the limitations of both methods 4. identify strategies for the improvement of the new method Scope This thesis is a preliminary exploration into measurement techniques for scapular motion.  The current focus is on establishing a benchmark for a non-invasive  measurement technique. This thesis reports on the development of the measurement methods and the performance of the methods in an in vitro, pre-clinical, cadaveric test.  18  Chapter 1 Introduction  Due to the diversity of topics covered in this thesis, the chapters have been organized such that each is essentially a self-contained study. As a result, the chapters may be read independently. When read as a whole, the chapters lay out the building blocks used to achieve the overall goal of measuring scapular kinematics. In the greater picture beyond the scope of this thesis, the measurement methods would be further refined and eventually applied in vivo to answer clinical questions regarding shoulder mechanics and pathology. 1.4  Overall Study Design  1.4.1 Requirements  To meet the objective of measuring the scapula, the following requirements were set. 1. the measurement method yield three-dimensional data 2. the method is non-invasive 3. the method is clinically practical in a rehabilitation setting 4. the method is repeatable and hence can be used to assess patient progress over time 1.4.2  Questions  The following questions were asked: 1. What is the accuracy and precision of the method? 2. Under what conditions (actions, range of motions, etc..) are the results considered valid? 3. What are the limitations of the method? 4. Which limitations can be overcome and how?  19  Chapter 1 Introduction  1.4.3  Measurement Methods - RSA & Skin Markers  Two measurement methods were used to track scapular motion. The first method, roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA), has been used by others and has been shown to be a gold standard in measuring in vivo skeletal motion. ' ' ' '  41 44 46 64 76  This gold  standard was then used to assess the validity of the second method. The second method involves the use of skin markers to track the flexible skin surface. Whereas other authors have reported the use of skin markers, this method differs in that it uses an array of markers forming a grid on the surface of the skin. ' '  43 53 54  The advantage of this  method over other authors has been the ability to track the regional variations over the shoulder surface. By measuring the regional variation, a more complete description of the correlation between the skin surface and the underlying bone can be made.  20  Chapter PILOT  2.1  2  STUDY  Objective  The purpose of this study was to assess the potential for using an array of skin markers, forming a grid on the surface of the shoulder, to measure the scapular motion beneath. 2.2  Methods  The right shoulder region of one 24-year-old male subject was used. The subject was muscular. The taunt skin surface had neither wrinkles nor "sags" due to excessive loss of subcutaneous tissue. The subject had a history of shoulder instability although it is reasoned that this should have no impact in whether the skin surface can be used to infer the underlying scapular motion. The skin surface posterior to the scapula was divided into ten patches (Figure 2-1). Infrared optoelectronic markers (Optotrak 3020, Northern Digital, Waterloo, Canada) were placed at each patch corner to track the motion of the patch (Figure 2-2). Abduction was performed in the coronal plane over a range of 145° (initial offset of -25° at rest position to maximum abduction at -170°). Ten abduction-adduction cycles were performed. Also visible in Figure 2-2 are two marker carriers in the lumbar spine region used to track the thoracic frame. Two carriers were used in order to assess the magnitude of relative motion between carriers. Ideally, there would be no relative motion indicating a rigid thoracicframewith no skin motion artifact. The final carrier seen in Figure 2-2 was used to track humeral motion.  21  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  Figure 2-3 shows the anatomical coordinate systems used for motion analysis. The baseframewas defined as the thoracicframe,oriented in a plane parallel to the initial position of the scapular spine (i.e. motions were computed in the scapular plane).  Figure 2-1: Pilot Patches Skin surface was divided into ten patches roughly 4-cm x 4-cm each.  Figure 2-3: Anatomical coordinate systems  22  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  2.3  Results  Scapular tipping, or rotation about an axis parallel to the scapular spine, was found to change by -12° (patch 10) to -35° (patch 6) relative to the scapula's rest position (Figure 2-4). Humeral rotations about this axis showed approximately 15° of internal rotation at maximum elevation. The motion of the humerus as well as some of the patches was asymmetric (i.e. abduction pattern differentfromadduction pattern). Scapular internal/external rotation, about the "vertical" y-axis, showed a more complex pattern than scapular tipping (Figure 2-5). Excluding patch 10, the range of rotation varied between -10° (patch 9) and -20° (patch 5). Patch 10 rotated to a maximum of -4° and a minimum of —20°. Its pattern indicated that it was folding in the opposite direction of the other patches during elevation.  Humeral rotations about this axis  ranged over -25°. The pattern indicated that the humerus swayed posteriorly during abduction. Near maximum abduction, the humerus swayed anteriorly before reaching maximum abduction. The adduction phase for the humerus mirrored the abduction phase. The humerus swayed posteriorly then anteriorly towards the resting position. The magnitude of the sway was not consistent between cycles. During adduction, the humerus moved at a slightly higher velocity.  The motion of the patches was  asymmetric. In this test, rotation about the z-axis corresponded to the upward rotation that has been reported by Inman and others. The rotation patterns appeared the simplest and most consistent of the three axes (Figure 2-6). The change in scapular rotation ranged from ~8° (patch 1) to 65° (patch 10). The change in humeral elevation was approximately 145° from an initial 25° offset (170° maximum absolute elevation). The patterns from all patches appeared similar. Patch 1, at the most medial-inferior corner of the grid, showed very little upward rotation.  23  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  S c a p u l a r T i p p i n g (Rx) D u r i n g A b d u c t i o n  20 -  in ci _  D) O  S  * • • Patch5 Rx 15  —  Q  10-  Patch6 Rx  • • • • Patch8 Rx -i— Patch9 Rx -  Patch 1 0 R x  — H u m e r u s Rx  T i m e (x0.1  seconds)  Figure 2-4: Scapular Tipping Patch and humeral rotations about x-axis during arm elevation cycles  S c a p u l a r I n t e r n a l / E x t e r n a l R o t a t i o n (Ry) During Abduction  • • * • - Patch5 Ry —•— Patch6 Ry Patch8 Ry —*— Patch9 Ry -  -  Patch 1 0 R y Humerus Ry  -25 J  T i m e (x0.1  seconds)  Figure 2-5: Scapular Internal/External Rotation Patch and humeral rotations about y-axis during arm elevation cycles  24  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  S c a p u l a r U p w a r d R o t a t i o n (Rz) D u r i n g A b d u c t i o n 140 -,  .  -40 J  1  T i m e (x0.1 s e c o n d s )  Figure 2-6: Scapular Elevation Patch and humeral rotations about z-axis during arm elevation cycles  Figure 2-7 shows a scatter plot of scapulothoracic angles versus humeral elevations reported in the literature. ' ' ' ' ' '  7 21 40 53 59 73 86  The slopes of the scatters are accurate although  their exact y-intercept is imprecise due to literature inconsistencies. In Figure 2-8, the rotation anglesfromthe inferior patches (1, 2 & 3) are plotted along with the data from the literature. By visual inspection it can be seen that the rhythm (slope) from the patches underestimated the rhythm reported in the literature.  Figure 2-9 shows a  similar plotfromthe patches on the medial and lateral periphery (patches 4, 7, 10). The rhythms from the medial patches were also lower than that reported in the literature. The rhythm from patch 10, which lay along the line of action of the humerus, significantly overestimated the ratio of glenohumeral to scapulothoracic angles. Figure 2-10 shows the rhythms from the four centrally located patches. Patches 8 and 9, which lay over the mid-section of the scapular spine, exhibited rhythms very close to that reported in literature. Patches 5 and 6 lay over the central portion of the scapular body and also showed rhythms in the ballpark of those in the literature.  25  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  Literature Data for S c a p u l o t h o r a c i c A n g l e s D u r i n g Abduction -80• 1944- Inman  • 1966- Freedman & Munro  -60-  a a at  ^ 1 9 7 6 - Poppen & Walker  40  © 1 9 8 8 - Bagg  < o  ^20• -0-i -20  A  (t A  <>1996 - Ludewig  A  A 0 1997- Talkhani  m  A30  130  80  180 A 1 9 9 8 - McQuade  -20Total Humeral Elevation (degrees)  Figure 2-7:  Composite of Literature Data Scatter plot of scapulothoracic angles reported in the literature.

Both groups used digitization of palpable surface features to measure scapular positions. Table 2-1 compares the range of motions of this pilot study to these results. The results for the range of motion about all three axes do not appear similar.  There are several reasons for this.  As with the study by  Lukasiewicz's group, the initial position was chosen as a "rest" position. This position was several degrees of abduction (-25° in this study). Consequently, the results are difficult to compare. This phenomenon is true for all studies reported in the literature. For example, Inman and Saunders reported an upward rotation rhythm of 2:1 for abduction beyond the initial setting phase of 30°. Poppen and Walker conducted a similar study as Inman and Saunders but reported a 5:4 rhythm but over the entire range of motion. The choice of dissimilar measurement intervals further compounds the problem.

' Difficulty lay in the inconsistency of coordinate definitions and the specific motions used across different studies. 53 54  The highly complex patterns observed in internal/external rotation does not support the findings of Ludewig's group. They found two internal/external rotation patterns. First, 84% of their subjects exhibited a progressive pattern of increased external rotation  28  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  during elevation. For the remaining 16%, the scapula remained in the same plane. In this study, the scapula's attitude in internal/external rotation appeared to fluctuate throughout the elevation. Ludewig's group found internal/external rotation to exhibit the highest variability across subjects. Hence the pattern in this study is probably not a general pattern but one unique to this particular subject. Rhythm As expected, the patches on the periphery of the scapula showed poor correlation with the literature.  In the region located centrally on the scapula, the results showed  reasonable correlation with data reported in the literature. It should be noted that the correlation is based on the similarity of the rhythm (slope) and not on whether the data points overlap.  The reason for this is due to the  shortcomings of the literature data reported. In general, although rhythm is often discussed,  inconsistent  initial  positions,  inconsistent  coordinate  definitions,  normalization of data to maximum elevation, and varying intervals of measurement, make the precise y-axis intercept of the rhythm data unreliable. The measured scapulohumeral rhythm showed a high variability depending on the patch's position on the skin surface. This demonstrates the regional sensitivity of a skin marker approach. An analysis of regional sensitivity of skin markers has not been addressed in the literature found to date. Most of the palpation approaches have used the scapular spine as a major landmark. The results support this intuitive notion that since there is minimal soft tissue covering the scapular spine, skin motion artifact is also minimized in this region making it a very reliable location for surface markers (Figure 2-11).  29  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  Figure 2-11:  Skin Patch Summary S k i n markers i n region o f the mid-section o f the scapular spine and centrally on the scapular body showed scapulohumeral rhythm which correlated well with that reported i n the literature.  Studies by McQuade and Karduna have used acromion surface markers to track the scapula. The results from patch 10, which lay along the line of action of the humerus, showed significant overestimation of the scapular upward rotation. A similar result was also observed by Karduna's group in a recent study accepted for publication.  42  A number of future questions remain to be answered. 1. What is the deformation of each patch? 2. What is the influence of the patch dimensions? 3. At what patch dimensions are deformations negligible? 4. What is the relationship between soft tissue thickness and skin artifact? 2.5  Conclusion  This pilot study showed that scapulohumeral rhythm obtained from tracking grids of skin markers was able to yield data in the ballpark of that reported in the literature. The results also showed that skin marker methods are highly sensitive to surface location.  30  Chapter 2 Pilot Study  The study also confirmed that the mid-section of the scapular spine was probably the best location for skin marker placement.  Finally, a number of standards are still  required in the investigation of scapular motion for meaningful comparisons of data to be achieved.  31  Chapter  3  STEREOPHOTOGRAMMETRY  The purpose of stereophotograrnrnetry is to reconstruct three-dimensional coordinates from two or more two-dimensional images. The images may be obtained in various ways - cameras, video cameras or in the case with roentgen stereophotograrnrnetry, xrays. There are several methods of analyzing the two-dimensional images to determine the object's three-dimensional coordinates.  This chapter discusses a few methods  described in the literature. Of these methods, two will be emphasized. First is the direct  linear transformation (DLT) frequently used  in camera and video  stereophotogrammetry. Second is the method described by Selvik and used frequently in roentgen stereophotogrammetry. 3.1  Stereophotogrammetric Preliminaries  Stereophotogrammetric analysis involves two steps - calibration and reconstruction. Initially, prior to calibration, there are two sets of unknowns. First is the relationship (distance, orientation) between the three-dimensional laboratory coordinate system and the two-dimensional image coordinate systems.  The second set is the three-  dimensional coordinates of the object being imaged. If one set is known, the other set can be calculated (schematic in Figure 3-1).  32  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  \\  laboratory coordinate  Image coordinate systems  Figure 3-1:  Stereophotogrammetric Setup Schematic showing three-dimensional laboratory coordinate system, a pair o f twodimensional image coordinate systems, and a three-dimensional object.  In calibration, an object with known coordinates is imaged and hence the unknown relationship between the laboratory and image coordinate systems can be calculated. The object used during calibration is called a calibration cage and typically consists of a balanced distribution of markers called calibration points (or calibration markers). In reconstruction, an arbitrary object is imaged and the known relationships previously solved in calibration are used to calculate the unknown coordinates of the object. As long as the relationships remain unchanged, the same calibration data can be used in subsequent reconstruction procedures. If for example the camera/film were moved, it would be necessary to recalibrate. 3.2  Overview of Stereophotogrammetric Analysis Methodologies  The relationship between the laboratory and image coordinate systems can be formally described by the ten parameters listed in Table 3-1. There are nine geometrical parameters and a scale factor (X) between the laboratory space and image plane. The node point is defined as the point that is collinear with all object and image points. The principal distance is the perpendicular distance from the node point to the image plane. Figure 3-2 shows the definitions of the parameters in Table 3-1.  33  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  1-actor  Significance  d  principal distance (perpendicular distance between node point and the image plane) coordinates of the node point in image coordinate system coordinates of the node point in lab coordinate system orientation between the lab coordinate system and the image coordinate system scale factor between the lab coordinate system and the image coordinate system  U ,V 0  0  <|>x, <j)y, <t>z,  X Table 3-1:  Stereophotogrammetric Parameters  Ten unknown parameters in an object/image pair.

Node point (N) is, by definition, the point that is collinear with both the image point (I) and the object point (O). The node point can be represented in the laboratory coordinate system (x ,y ,z ) and the image coordinate system (u ,v ,d). The principal distance (d) is the shortest distance from the node point to the image plane and hence intersects the plane perpendicularly at the principal point (P)." 0  0  0  0  0  The varying methodologies differ in their approach of computing the parameters and the subsequent, inverse computation, used in the reconstruction phase. Some goals are  " DLT diagrams and derivations in this chapter are based on the information found at www.kwon3d.com.  34  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  to improve computational speed and to increase flexibility in terms of the imaging setup.  Others are to improve accuracy by compensating for lens distortion or by  reducing the need to extrapolate beyond the calibrated space. Several methods have been used to perform three-dimensional reconstruction in camera/video stereophotogrammetry. ' ' " ' ' ' 11 15 23  25 28 32 63  One of the earliest methods, and  also the most often currently used, is the direct linear transformation (DLT) proposed by Abdel-Aziz and Karara in 1971. The basic DLT method involves converting the ten unknown parameters into eleven intermediate parameters. The equations for the eleven intermediate parameters are linear and easily solved by least-squares optimization. The DLT is discussed in more detail in section 3.3. Other methods have also been proposed. In 1988, Hatze presented a modified DLT (MDLT) algorithm. The modification involved the addition of one constraint equation to remove the over-determinacy of the original DLT. The results showed an order of magnitude improvement in accuracy. One major flaw in Hatze's method was that the reconstruction object was identical to the calibration object. Other authors since then have discussed  problems with using the same object  reconstruction. '  16 32  for calibration and  The calibration parameters are tuned to the calibration object.  Using this same object to test reconstruction accuracy causes overly optimistic results. The performance of MDLT for unknown object coordinates has not been reported. A method called non-linear transformation (NLT) has been proposed as a flexible alternative to DLT.  Instead of a fixed calibration cage, NLT uses a pole moved  throughout a given space to calibrate it. This method allows for the calibration of an arbitrarily large volume without the need to manufacture large, costly and impractical calibration cages. Hinrichs and McLean compared NLT to DLT in 1995. They found that below 50% of extrapolation, DLT was clearly more accurate than NLT. NLT showed comparable or better results than DLT beyond 100% extrapolation.  35  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  A self-calibration method called maximum likelihood estimation was presented by Muijtjens et al. in 1999.  63  No calibration cage is required. The method assumes a  symmetric stereo camera setup and solves for the calibration parameters using the symmetry as a guide. The major drawback in this approach is that it requires prior knowledge of the image distance and the intersection of the camera axis with the image plane. These quantities are generally difficult to determine to a high accuracy and hence greatly limit the usefulness of this method. Although others have shown improvements with new algorithms the results have not been compelling. Consequently, DLT remains the most widely used technique in video stereophotogrammetry.  For this reason, DLT and another method developed  specifically for roentgen stereophotogrammetry will be the focus of the remainder of this chapter. 3.3  Direct Linear Transformation  DLT was initially presented by Abdul-Aziz and Karara in 1971. In 1975, Marzan and Karara presented an algorithm for its computation.  The relationship between the  laboratory space and the image plane begins with the node point previously defined. Recall the node point (also called the projection centre) is defined as the point that is collinear with the image point and the object point. Figure 3-3 shows how the node point satisfies the collinearity condition with all image/object point pairs.  36  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  Object (Lab) Space  Figure 3-3:  The Node Point  The node point (or projection centre) is collinear with each pair of object and corresponding image points. This is the collinearity condition.  Consider the object frame." (Figure 3-4) The node point has unknown coordinates 1  (xo,yojZo)object_frame-  A  vec  tor, A, can be defined in the laboratory coordinate system  from the node point to the object point (x-xo,y-yo,z-z )object_frame0  Object (Lab) Space t  O (x,y,z)  Figure 3-4: Vector A  Define a vector, A, in the lab coordinate system (x,y,z) that goes from the node to the object point.

Recall the principal point is the point of  perpendicular intersection of a line from the node point to the image plane.

Hence we have: Bimage_frame  cAj age_frame  cRi age_frame_to_object_frameAobject_frame  m  m  where R is a rotation matrix describing the relative orientation between the image and object frames of reference.

During reconstruction, each image of a particular object point contributes two equations hence a minimum of two images are required to solve the three unknown coordinates (x,y,z) of the object. Marzan and Karara have proposed DLT algorithms of up to sixteen parameters. The purposes of the additional parameters are to account for non-linearities in the lens and camera systems. As this project deals with x-rays, which have been shown by Hallert and Hollender to not undergo significant refraction, the 11-parameter DLT method has been used. '  44 79  3.4  Selvik's Method for RSA  During the time that DLT was under development, another three-dimensional reconstruction method was  developed  by Selvik and applied to roentgen  stereophotogrammetric analysis or RSA. Since then, RSA's use in orthopaedics as a highly accurate, in vivo, three-dimensional measurement method has become widespread. In a review by Karrholm, it was reported that between 1972 and 1989, roughly 20,000 tantalum markers had been implanted in about 2000 patients with no adverse effects. '  1 44  The implantation of spherical (typical diameters: 0.5mm, 0.8mm,  1.0mm) tantalum markers into bone serve two purposes. First, their high radio-opacity make them accurately identifiable landmarks from image to image. Second, tantalum has an atomic number of 73 making it almost ten times more radio-opaque than bone. This large differential allows the x-ray dose to the patient to be reduced without a significant loss of image contrast. Refer to the appendix on x-ray radiography for x-ray imaging considerations.  41  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  3.5  Selvik's Methodology  Selvik's method begins with the principle of a central projection from the x-ray source, through the object space onto the image plane. The method is similar to DLT discussed in the previous section. The central projection is the node point discussed previously. The calibration points are divided into two groups called fiducial points (marks) and control points (marks). The fiducial points lie in a plane called the fiducial plane. The control points lie in a plane called the control plane. The x-ray source, a fiducial point, and the image of the fiducial point all lie on the same line.  C o n t r o l Plane  Fiducial Plane  Image Plane  Figure 3-6:  Central Projection  The central projection from the source through two planes of calibration points to the image plane. The x-ray source, calibration point (control or fiducial) lie on the same line - the collinearity condition.  42  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  The method thus far appears identical to that of DLT with the exception of some terminology. It is in fact the same collinearity condition as before and hence the same resultant relationship holds and is repeated below. Lx+Ly +Lz + L u— L x + L y + L z +1 x  2  9  3  l0  A  n  Lx + Ly + Lz + L s  6  7  %  L x + L y + L z +1 9  w  u  However, if only the fiducial plane is considered, or only the control plane is considered, the control points in the laboratory coordinate system lie strictly in a plane and it is possible to set z = 0. The expression thus simplifies to: Lx+Ly + L x  2  3  L x + L y +1 7  s  Lx + Ly +L 4  s  6  Lx + Ly + 1 7  s  where the subscripts have been renumbered to reflect the reduction in the number of parameters from 11 to 8. This is the form of the collinearity condition presented by Selvik.  It is a two-dimensional direct linear transformation. At this point the two  methods diverge. The use of the 2D-DLT means that the image coordinates can only be transformed back to a two-dimensional plane. In order to recover the three-dimensional coordinates, additional steps are required in both the calibration and reconstruction process. The following describes Selvik's calibration process using a calibration cage with markers in a fiducial plane and a control plane. First, known coordinates of the fiducial markers are combined with their images to compute the eight 2D-DLT parameters which describe the relationship between the object plane and the image plane. Second, the known 2D-DLT parameters are used with the image of the control points to  43  Chapter 3 Stereophotogrammetry  reconstruct (note: this is still part of the overall calibration) the intersection of the control point x-rays with the fiducial plane. Third, the coordinates of the control points in the fiducial plane are combined with the known coordinates of the control points in the control plane to solve for the coordinates of the x-ray source with respect to the fiducial plane. The x-ray source is the intersection of the bundle or rays passing through the control points in the control plane and their transformed locations in the fiducial plane.  The intersection is solved by least-squares optimization.  The  relationship between the image coordinate system and the laboratory coordinate system is now known (2D-DLT parameters) as well as the location of the node point (i.e. the xray source). In reconstruction, the image points are first transformed to the fiducial plane. The three-dimensional coordinates of a point are determined by finding the intersection of the lines, again solved by least-squares, from the image point in the two fiducial planes to their respective x-ray sources. 3.6  Discussion of DLT and Selvik's Method  Selvik's method can be considered a less general version of DLT. Although Selvik's expression has only eight parameters and thus appears simpler, it is at the expense of a more complicated overall methodology. DLT uses two least square-optimization steps - once in calibration, once in reconstruction. Selvik's method uses four least-squares optimization steps - two in calibration (2D-DLT and determination of x-ray source location) and two in reconstruction (inverse 2D-DLT and determination of threedimensional intersection). What is the influence of performing the calibration and reconstruction in more optimization steps? This question, along with the issue of calibration cage geometry, is the focus of the next section, RSA Simulation.  44  Chapter RSA  4  SIMULATIONS  There were two key motivations for conducting RSA simulations. The first was to determine which of two commercially available calibration cages (Figure 4-1) produced more accurate reconstruction results. The second was to compare the reconstruction accuracy of DLT and Selvik's stereophotogrammetric analysis method.  Figure 4-1:  Calibration Cages Commercially available calibration cages designed for R S A using Selvik's stereophotogrammetric analysis methods. Projective cage (left) where the two film cassettes lie in the same plane and biplanar cage (right) where the two film cassettes are at 90° to each other. Diagrams were modified from Yuan & R y d . 100  In addition, the simulations could be used to address other issues such as the influence of various parameters on reconstruction accuracy. Stereophotogrammetric exposures involve a number of variables relating to the geometry of the setup, the configuration of the calibration markers on the cage, and the measurement error. Specific geometric and cage variables are listed below.  45  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Geometric Variables • distance of x-ray source to film • distance of calibration cage to film • distance/position of object to calibration cage • orientation of films Calibration Cage Variables • # calibration markers (also called control and fiducial points) on cage • distribution of calibration markers • volume enclosed by calibration markers • accuracy of knowing calibration marker coordinates The simulation was divided into two parts. Part I dealt with the primary objective of comparing the two cages and the two algorithms. Part II assessed the influence of various parameters on reconstruction accuracy. 4.1  Part I - Calibration Cage and Analysis Algorithm  The calibration cages were designed for RSA using Selvik's stereophotogrammetric analysis methods.  The first cage is referred to as a projective cage. The cage is  designed for RSA of the hip, spine, and shoulder. The cage is typically placed beneath the subject and is visible in all stereo exposures. The second cage is referred to as a biplanar cage. The cage is designed for RSA of the knee. The knee is typically place inside the cage and is thus surrounded by the calibration markers. For the projective cage, where the subject is above the essentially flat cage, the question arises as to how much inaccuracy is introduced by extrapolation beyond the region surrounded by  the  calibration markers?  It  is  often  noted  in general  stereophotogrammetric literature (i.e. non-RSA) that for highest accuracy, the calibration markers should evenly surround the volume being imaged and extrapolation beyond this volume should be avoided. ' ' 16  18  24,28  '  32  4.1.1 Part I - Objective The objective of this set of simulations was to determine which commercial calibration cage should be acquired for the RSA system under development and to determine  46  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  which  algorithm,  DLT or  Selvik's,  should  be  used  to  perform  the  stereophotogrammetric analysis. Reconstruction accuracy was used to compare the combinations of cage and analysis method. 4.1.2 Part I - Methods RSA Graphic User Interface (RSAGUI) A simulation environment was implemented in Matlab (The MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA). The environment provided functionality for both simulation and actual analysis of real data. Some general features are listed below: 1. define calibration cages and hypothetical objects 2. generate simulated x-ray exposures of cage and objects 3. specify x-ray source and film positions and orientations 4. control measurement error of calibration points and measured image points 5. render the stereophotogrammetric setup in three-dimensions  for visual  inspection 6. apply DLT and Selvik's analysis methods for calibration and reconstruction Figure 4-2 and Figure 4-3 show some of the interface of RSAGUI. The Matlab code for RSAGUI is found in the appendices.  47  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  MlJI.Ill)  Bl j^lig|ajM^iniEj*jj^i^i^i»i«iUil^ f  Reconstructon 25fJ r  >1  Cage 8c««id«y fOpbanafl Tao -  r  xt  tl  i—;—1—  jgjr  Lwci Emxrae Cage j DF2.50.-50.-50.0, DP3,50.50.-50.0.

The core of the DLT analysis was performed by the Kinmat toolbox available from the International Society of Biomechanics (http://isb.ri.ccf.org). Selvik's analysis method was implemented using 2D-DLT components also available from isb.ri.ccf.org and custom routines written to complete the analysis method. Simulated Calibration Cages and Object Two virtual calibration cages were created for the simulation. They approximated the projective and biplanar cages available commercially. The projective cage (Figure 4-4) was designed such that the two x-ray cassettes lay in the same plane. There were nine 2  2  •  fiducial markers, covering a 30.5 cm x 16.5 cm area, associated with each film. There were seven control markers lying symmetrically between the two films 21-cm above the fiducial plane. Figure 4-5 shows how the oblique exposure would image the control markers and the fiducial markers.  - H ^ 16.5 c m / 16.5 cm/< Film 2  Film 1  Figure 4-4: Virtual projective cage X-ray cassettes lie in the same plane beneath the fiducial markers.  49  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  x-ray source  Film 2  Film 1  Figure 4-5: Projective Cage Exposure Schematic of x-rays from source 1 imaging the control markers and the fiducial markers.  The biplanar cage (Figure 4-6) was designed such that the two x-ray sources and films were at 90° to each other. There were nine calibration markers on each of the two fiducial planes and each of the two control planes.  In Selvik's methodology, the  exposure is such that only control plane 1 markers and fiducial plane 1 markers appear on film 1 and only control plane 2 markers and fiducial plane 2 markers appear on film 2 (Figure 4-7).  This exposure of only two planes can also be analyzed with DLT.  However, DLT is not restricted to a planar analysis. For this cage, the exposure of all thirty-six calibration markers on film 1 and all thirty-six calibration markers on film 2 was also analyzed with DLT. To compare the DLT and Selvik methods, a virtual object consisting of nine points was imaged in the simulations. The points were distributed at the vertices of a 10-cm x 10cm cube with one marker at the centroid of the cube (Figure 4-8). The dimensions of the cube were chosen such that its position could be varied within the calibration space. This allowed a continuum of reconstruction accuracy to be established from interpolation within the calibration space to extrapolation beyond the calibration cage's boundaries.  50  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Control Markers - film 2 film 1  Figure 4-6: Virtual Biplanar Cage X - r a y cassettes (not shown) lie behind the two fiducial planes at 90° to each other.  Figure 4-7: Biplanar Cage Exposure Sample path o f x-rays from source 1 imaging control and fiducial markers. In Selvik's analysis method, only 2 planes (control and fiducial) are used with a given film. Markers for source 2 have been omitted for clarity.  Figure 4-8: Virtual object Dimensions were selected such that object's position could be varied inside the calibrated space. This enabled interpolation and extrapolation reconstruction accuracy to be compared.  51  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations Simulation Trials An "ideal test" using the biplanar cage and zero measurement error was used to ensure confidence that the analysis engines were functioning properly. Zero measurement error should result in zero reconstruction error. A total of five sets of simulations were conducted to compare the two calibration cages and two analysis methods (Figure 4-9). The projective cage was used with Selvik's analysis method (set 1) and DLT (set 2). The biplanar cage was used with Selvik's analysis (set 3) and DLT (set 4). To understand the distinction of the fifth set, recall that in Selvik's analysis method, only two planes of calibration markers (fiducial and control) are used for calibration. DLT can also use this biplanar data for calibration (set 4).  However, DLT can also use all calibration markers on the entire cage for  calibration, (i.e. markers on all four planes) This set has been labeled "Full Cage + 3D-DLT" (set 5).  Projective Cage  Figure 4-9:  Biplanar Cage  Simulation Sets Five simulations were conducted to compare the two calibration cages and two analysis algorithms. For the biplanar cage, Selvik's analysis method only uses two planes for calibrating each film. 3D-DLT calibration can use this biplanar data, however, it can also use the full cage (i.e. four planes in 3D) for calibration. This special case constitutes the fifth simulation set. Diagrams were modified from Yuan & R y d . 100  52  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  For each simulation, the object was positioned at various locations along the line of symmetry between the two x-ray sources. At each position, the reconstruction of the object was simulated 1000 times using a zero mean normal distribution of measurement error with a standard deviation of 0.02-mm.  100  The geometry of the simulations was as  would typically be used for each respective cage. For the biplanar cage, the sources were at 90° to each other. For the projective cage, the angle between the sources was approximately 24°. Consequently, the setup conditions used for the two cages were not exactly analogous but the geometry was consistent a practical imaging geometry for shoulder kinematics. 4.1.3 Part I - Results The "ideal test" produced essentially zero reconstruction error (Figure 4-10). The slight deviation from exactly zero (i.e. < 0.0003-mm) was attributed to round-off errors introduced when the simulation uses trignometric functions to mathematically project the object points onto the image planes. For each test condition, the results using DLT and Selvik's method overlapped. The results for the projective cage showed a continuous increase in error as the object was moved further from the fiducial plane towards the x-ray sources (Figure 4-11). At 350-mm from the fiducial plane, the RMS error was 0.14-mm (SD = 0.05). At 1100mm from the fiducial plane, the RMS error was 0.51-mm (SD = 0.30). The results using DLT and Selvik were equal to three decimal places. RMSEz  dominated the overall RMSE. The z-axis was in the direction towards the x-  ray sources. The RMS errors in the x-y plane remained below 0.1-mm at 1100-mm above the fiducial plane. An increase in extrapolation distance of 900-mm resulted in an RMSE increase of 0.04-mm and RMSE of 0.06-mm. y  X  53  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Comparison of DLT vs Selvik for Extrapolation (biplanar cage, source to film 2500mm, object 100x100x100mm, measr. err 0.0mm) \  0 0H01B  \  \  E E.  0 0001?  in  \  n nnnnq \  \  n non02i-  «  -150  -X-DLT& Selvik zRMSE  n nono^  \ -200  ^-DLT& Selvik yRMSE  0 ri^oi  \  uj  -S-DLT& Selvik xRMSE  0^014  n  n  -100  -50  0  50  100  150  Object Centre (=x=z) in plane of symmetry of cage/sources  Figure 4-10:  Zero Simulation  Essentially zero reconstruction error was found when measurement error was set to zero.

At the centre of the calibrated space, there was little difference between the three reconstruction methods (Table 4-1). The RMS error at the centre of the calibrated space ranged from 0.026-mm for DLT using a full cage to 0.031-mm when using Selvik's method. With the object centred on the cage boundary, the RMS error ranged from 0.030-mm when using DLT with a full cage to 0.129-mm when using Selvik's method.

Deviationfromexactly zero cannot be avoided since round-off errors were introduced into the simulation when the object points were mathematically projected onto the image plane. The projective cage results showed significant overall RMS errors in extrapolation. Typical usage of the projective cage places the subject in this extrapolation space. However, the typical usage of this cage is to detect planar motions.  In the plane  parallel to the fiducial plane, the RMS errors (RMSE , RMSE ) were significantly X  y  lower (~0.05-mm vs. >0.15-mm) and remained more constant than in the normal direction (RMSE ). Yuan and Ryd reported similar results.  100  Z  They used Selvik's  method in simulation and reported the z-axis error to be 2.7x greater than x-axis or yaxis error for the projective cage.  The lower error in the x-y plane presents a  reasonable argument for the use of the projective cage in situations when very little out of plane motion is expected. It is expected that the scapula will exhibit significant nonplanar motion. The accuracy in the axial direction (RMSE ) is dependent on the camera angle. In the Z  limit as the camera angle approaches zero, the two images become identical and the z position cannot be determined. This dependence was not quantified in this study. The  56  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  choice of camera angle was consistent with practical imaging of the shoulder region in a rehabilitation setting. A comparison of the overall RMSE between the two cages shows that the best accuracy can be achieved with the biplanar cage (Figure 4-13). Yuan and Ryd also found similar results.  100  However, the biplanar cage confines the object of interest and is poorly  suited for large planar motions. To circumvent this, the object may be placed outside the cage boundaries. However in this case the RMS errors are very similar to those of the projective cage. Alternatively, the cage may be removed after calibration to allow a greater range of subject motion in subsequent exposures while avoiding extrapolation. The region of interest could be centred in the calibrated space to ensure highest accuracy. There is a drawback to this second alternative. The change of x-ray film cassettes introduces slight displacements in the imaging plane. In addition, an image plane coordinate system is defined for each x-ray film. The image points are measured with respect to this image plane coordinate system. Naturally, there is variability in the definition of this local coordinate system. When the cage is present in each exposure, each stereo pair is self-calibrated. By removing the cagefromsubsequent exposures, the calibration relies on the initial-calibration and does not account for shifts due to xray cassette replacement or measurement errors in defining the image plane coordinate system. Extrapolation beyond cage boundaries increases RMS error. '  17 98  The removal of the  calibration cage increases RMS error. Which introduces greater error is a question to be resolved.  57  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Comparison of Projective and Biplanar Cages for Under Typical Usage Conditions (100x100x100mm object, measr. err 0.02mm) -DLT RMSE Full sf2500 -DLT RMSE biplanar sf2500  E E.

Note that the planar R M S errors (x,y) for the projective cage are much lower than in the normal direction (z). The overall R M S E for both cages are dominated by R M S E . Z  The comparison between the two analysis methods yielded curious results. For the projective cage, the results were essentially identical. For the biplanar cage, the results were identical only for the "ideal test" where the measurement error was zero (Figure 4-10). In the subsequent tests using 0.02-mm of measurement error, DLT showed higher accuracy than Selvik's method. In addition, DLT using all calibration points (full cage) was more accurate than the biplanar method. The key geometric difference between the cages is in the control plane.  For the  projective cage, the control markers are collinear. For the biplanar cage, the control markers form a plane.  No analytical explanation resulting from this geometric  distinction alone was found. Consider the two calibration methods. For both techniques, the reconstructions are simply inverse operations. DLT solves for the relationship between the lab and image  58  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  frames in a single least-squares optimization step. Selvik's method uses two steps. A 2D-DLT solves for orientation, via least-squares, while the projection centre (node point) is solved in a subsequent least-squares optimization. It is difficult to visualize an n-dimensional least-squares optimization. Instead consider the simpler least-squares optimization of fitting a straight line to a set of data. What is the effect of dividing the optimization into two steps? A hypothetical example is shown in Figure 4-14.  Assume for this example that all the data used in the  optimization are equally weighted. If the optimization is broken into two steps, the weighting is redistributed. For example, five inputs may be used to solve for a single intermediate value. This single value holds less weight than the original five in the final line fit. The difference in the two solutions becomes more pronounced as the errors of the data increase.  59  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  ®  C)  .,© ®  ©  ©  ©  ®  G)  Step 1 results have different weighting in Step 2 optimisation  ©  O  ®  °  ®  o © Step 2 fit  H)  Resultant least-squares fit in two step is same as one step when the errors are Q small  Figure 4-14:  ®  © ©©  Optimization - Single versus Multiple Steps Least-squares optimization for two variables. In the two step optimization, the results of the first step are no longer weighted as they would have been originally. When the errors are small, the two step optimization is the same as the single step. When the deviations are larger, the two step fit may not be the same as that obtained from the single optimization.  This graphical argument implies that there is an intermediate step in Selvik's method that has essentially no error in the projective cage, but has a more significant error in the biplanar cage. The source of this error may be the control markers.  60  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  During step 2 of Selvik's calibration method, the control markers are projected onto the fiducial plane (Figure 4-15). For the projective cage, this inverse 2D-DLT projects the markers inside the area covered by the fiducial markers.  This is a region of  interpolation. For the biplanar cage used in this simulation, the control markers are projected outside the area covered by the fiducial markers.  This is a region of  extrapolation and hence is subject to higher errors. The control points are no longer used after this step and this intermediate error is similar to the scenario depicted in Figure 4-14. DLT does not have this step and hence does not incur the error associated with it.  Figure 4-15:  Control Point Extrapolation Using Selvik's analysis method, the control markers are projected into the calibrated region o f the fiducial plane for the projective cage. For the biplanar cage used in this simulation, the control markers are projected into the extrapolation region o f the fiducial plane. The extrapolation error propagates through the remainder o f the analysis. Is this the source o f the discrepancy between Selvik and D L T i n the biplanar cage but not the projective cage?  More formally, for a result that is a function of several variables, R = R(xi,x ,x ,.. .,x ), 2  3  n  where ei,e ,e3,...,en are the respective uncertainties in xi,x ,x ,...,x , then the 2  2  uncertainty in R is:  8R_ R  e  = V 1 &  V  +  dR dx  2  61  \  2  + ...+  dR  v  3  n  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Applying this to compare the calibration result from DLT and Selvik: U Cal U  U Cal  DLT  DLT{P)  U Cal  denotes the collective  Selvik  U Cal Selvik  (P,C)  unknown variables discussed  in the chapter on  stereophotograrnrnetry (i.e. node point, relationship between image and laboratory coordinate). DLT and Selvik's method both solve for U in calibration. The accuracy of U depends on the image points and calibration points, P, which are the same for both DLT and Selvik's method. However, the accuracy of Selvik's method also depends on the projection of the control points onto the fiducial plane. Hence C denotes this projection solution.

For the biplanar cage, e is larger due to c  62  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  extrapolation.  These graphical and error analysis arguments explain why the two  analysis methods produce the same results in the projective cage but differing results for the biplanar cage. The arguments suggest that the control markers in the fiducial plane should occupy a smaller area so as to be projected into the interpolation region of the fiducial plane. Upon acquisition of the biplanar cage, this was observed to be the case. 4.1.5 Part I - Conclusions In summary, the biplanar cage was found to have a higher overall accuracy. For planar motions in the extrapolation region, both cages appeared comparable. It remains to be answered whether removing the biplanar cage to allow planar motion in the calibrated space yields higher accuracy than extrapolation. The analysis methods gave identical results when used with the projective cage and different results when used with the biplanar cage. A graphical and error analysis explanation was presented but an analytical proof has not yet been found. For biplanar calibration, the use of the full cage with DLT yields the highest accuracy. DLT analysis performed as good, or better, than Selvik's analysis under all conditions. 4.2  Part II - Influence of Parameters  4.2.1 Part II - Objective The setup of a stereophotogrammetric exposure can be highly variable. In addition to the calibration cage and the analysis method, there are geometric and cage parameters that can be varied. This series of simulations aimed to address the following questions. 1. What is the effect of calibration cage manufacturing accuracy? This question was asked to determine the feasibility of manufacturing the cage "in-house". "In-house" manufacturing allows flexibility in the design of the cage's geometry.  63  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  2. What is the effect of the x-ray source to film distance? This question was posed to address a potential practical experimental issue. It is anticipated that the source to film distance is somewhat difficult to control to a high accuracy during experimentation. 3. What is the effect of asymmetric object positioning in the exposure? This question was asked to address another experimental issue. Due to the high range of motion in the shoulder joint, it is anticipated that the motion of the scapula and humerus will be highly asymmetric with respect to the stereophotogrammetric setup. 4. What is the interpolation accuracy of the projective cage?  This was a  hypothetical question posed in an attempt to assess the influence of projective versus biplanar cage geometry.  The methods and results in part I do not  indicate if the projective cage's poorer performance was a result of extrapolation or cage geometry or both. In part I, the virtual object was always outside the volume of the projective cage while the biplanar cage accuracy was assessed both inside and outside the calibrated volume.  This difference  followed naturallyfromthe typical usage of each of the cages. 4.2.2 Part II - Methods The simulation environment used in part I, RSAGUI, was used to run this series of simulations. Unless otherwise stated, the calibration cages, the virtual object, and the object's positions were identical to that used in part I. The manufacturing accuracy of the calibration cage was assessed by comparing two virtual biplanar cages with different manufacturing accuracies.  The placement  accuracy of the calibration markers on one cage was 0.01-mm while on the other cage it was 0.2-mm. The effect of source distance was assessed using the biplanar cage. The two distances compared were 2500-mm and 4500-mm.  64  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  The effect of asymmetric object position was assessed using the biplanar cage. The object was moved along the axis of x-ray source 1. The interpolation accuracy of the projective cage geometry was examine by creating a hypothetical cage, similar to the projective cage in part I. The only difference was that the control markers were at a height of 1000-mm, instead of 210-mm, above the fiducial plane. This allowed a range of interpolation positions to be tested. Due to geometric limitations of the angle of x-ray exposure, only a single object point was used. The object point was moved along the z-axis toward the x-ray sources along the setup's line of symmetry. 4.2.3  Part II - Results  The increase in manufacturing uncertainty, from 0.01-mm to 0.2-mm resulted in a significant increase in reconstruction error (Figure 4-16). At the cage centre where the errors are lowest, the cage with calibration markers accurate to 0.01-mm had a reconstruction RMS error of 0.03-mm compared to 0.11-mm for the cage manufactured to a 0.2-mm accuracy. At 200-mrn from the cage centre, the difference was almost an order of magnitude (0.04-mm versus 0.33-mm). An increase in source distance from 2500-mm to 4500-mm resulted in a small increase in error. The effect was much smaller than the choice of analysis method used (Figure 4-17).  65  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  Comparison of Reconstruction Accuracy for cage accuracy of 0.01-mm and 0.2-mm  n 04 - O - DLT RMSE full cage,  n v; \  0.01  m n 25 \  RMSE full cage,  n 9 : _  0.2  n  i ft 7~ ' -200  -150  —  5  n <2  Q  -100  -50  <> 0 0  $  0  ^  50  100  150  Object Centre (=x=z) in plane of symmetry of cage/sources  Figure 4-16:  Manufacturing Accuracy Comparison of reconstruction error for biplanar cage manufactured to an accuracy of 0.01-mm versus 0.2-mm.

For biplanar calibration  data used with DLT and Selvik's method, there was an increase in errors in the direction away from the x-ray sources. Towards the sources, there was no difference (Figure 4-18). The interpolation accuracy of the projective cage was highest at the control plane (Figure 4-19). The hypothetical cage with the control plane at 1000-mm from the fiducial plane had a higher accuracy than the cage with the control plane at 210-mrn.

A higher control plane resulted in higher accuracy.  4.2.4 Part II - Discussion The data emphasized the importance of accuracy in manufacturing the calibration cage. With a manufacturing accuracy of 0.2-mm, the RMS error at 20-cm from the cage centre was predicted to be 0.33-mm. This is a significant error if the cage is to be used to detect micromotions on the order of 0.1-mm. In addition, the measurement accuracy used in the simulation was a very optimistic 0.02-mm. The negligible effect of source distance indicates that there is reasonable flexibility in the stereophotogrammetric setup. This is an important result for RSA of the shoulder where future investigations may require the use of rehabilitation equipment and hence a more distant positioning of the x-ray source from the film plane. DLT using the full cage for calibration negates any effect of asymmetry in the object .positioning.  This is an extremely useful result since it is very difficult to create a  68  Chapter 4 RSA Simulations  perfectly symmetric stereophotogrammetric setup. In addition, for large motions such as in the shoulder, asymmetric object positions will be unavoidable. It was an unexpected result that the highest accuracy for the projective cage was at the control plane. This is an asymmetric position. No analytical expressions were found to explain this result. The question was not pursued further because the projective cage was only hypothetical and intended to extend geometric comparisons with the biplanar cage. 4.2.5 Part II - Conclusions As expected, accuracy in cage manufacturing was found to significantly influence reconstruction accuracy.  The results  suggest there  is  flexibility  in the  sterephotograrnmetric setup with respect to source to film distance as well as asymmetric positioning of the object in the field of view. The projective cage exhibited highest reconstruction accuracy at the control plane. 4.3  RSA Simulation Conclusions  The accuracy of a stereophotogrammetric exposure depends on a wide variety of variables.  A software environment has been developed to analyse arbitrary  stereophotogrammetric setups and allow the influence of various parameters to be assessed. The simulations on the calibration cages show that the biplanar cage has the potential to be more accurate than the projective cage. Hence the biplanar cage was acquired for the RSA system developed.  The simulations also showed that DLT  performed as good or better than Selvik's method for all trials. Hence, DLT was selected as the analysis method for the RSA system. There is flexibility in setting up the stereophotogrammetric exposures since the source to film distance as well as asymmetric object positioning had little effect on overall accuracy.  69  Chapter RSA  5  A C C U R A C Y STUDIES  RSA has been considered a gold standard for measuring in vivo skeletal positions for over twenty-five years. Its accuracy has been reported to range anywhere between 0.01-mm and 0.25-mm for reconstruction/translations, and between 0.03° and 0.6° for rotations.  44  The variation in accuracy presumably stems from differences in how the  data are acquired and analysed.  This chapter chronicles the systematic benchtop  assessment of a variety of factors that influence the accuracy of the RSA system used in this thesis. The analysis was necessary because it identified the current capabilities of the RSA methods used. Scapulothoracic motions are large and hence an extremely high accuracy (say 0.01-mm) was probably not essential for this specific thesis. Nevertheless, the identification of the system's limitations will assist in the refinement and ultimate realization of an RSA system accurate enough to measure in vivo micromotions on the order of 0.1-mm. 5.1  Measurement Accuracy  The reconstruction accuracy of the RSA system is dependent on the quality of the data input to the analysis.  A typical RSA image consists of circular images of the  calibration cage markers and implanted tantalum markers. The coordinates of these marks must be extracted and fed into the RSA analysis software. There are several methods available to digitize the coordinates of the markers on the x-ray images. These can be grouped into manual coordinate measuring tables and software coordinate measurement.  70  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  5.1.1 Objective This investigation aimed to determine software measurement accuracy of scanned x-ray images. Specifically, the effect of sphere radius and image contrast was analysed.  ,v  5.1.2 Methods Matlab (The MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA) was used to generate hypothetical x-ray images.  Each image contained ten circles representing the simulated exposure of  spherical markers. Five sphere radii (0.5,1.0,1.5,2.0,2.5-mm) and five contrast levels (10,30,50,70,90% transmission of x-rays through sphere ) were tested for a total of 25 v  images and 250 circles. The images were generated with a resolution of 150 pixels per inch (ppi). This is the same x-ray scanner resolution that would subsequently be used vl  on real x-rays. The images were in tiff format with an 8-bit grayscale resolution. The size of each image was 750x750 pixels. This was chosen to allow a sparse distribution of circles while maintaining a reasonable file size (550KB). The exact coordinates of the centre of each sphere's image was output to a file and used as a gold standard for accuracy. All images had Poisson noise added to them to simulate x-ray noise. The circles in the images were numbered in Adobe Photoshop (Adobe Systems Inc., San Jose, CA) and inverted. The final results were reasonable approximations of scanned x-rays (Figure 5-1).  IV  Contrast has been defined here as 1 - T, where T is the x-ray transmissibility. T is the variable presented throughout this chapter.  v  A perfectly radio-opaque object has 0% x-ray transmissibility and hence has a high contrast. perfectly radio-lucent object has 100% x-ray transmissibility and hence has no contrast.  vl  Pixels per inch (ppi) refers to the input resolution (e.g. from scanner) whereas dots per inch (dpi) refers to the output resolution (e.g. to printer).

The circle centres were identified using the crosshair tool in Scion Image for Windows B403 (based on NTH Image for Macintosh adapted by Scion Corporation, www.scioncorp.com). The monitor used was a 17" Acer 77e (Acer Inc., Taipei, Taiwan) running at a resolution of 1024x768, True Color (32-bit), with a refresh rate of 75-Hz. A Microsoft mouse using IntelliPoint software allowing it to run at 30% maximum speed with maximum acceleration was used for digitization (Microsoft Corp., Redmond, WA). The gold standard file was not opened until all digitization was completed. The measurement error for point, pi, was calculated in pixels as e\ = [(x idgo  x0 +(y o,d-yi) ] . 2  2  1/2  g  Two-way analysis of variance was used to compare the effects of sphere radius and percent x-ray transmission. A p-value less than 0.05 was considered significant. 5.1.3 Results  A constant error of 1.4-pixels, 1-vertical and 1-horizontal, was observed for most of the measurements. The most significant difficulties were encountered digitizing the image of 1-mm diameter spheres at 90% x-ray transmission. This difficulty was evident in the results with this test having a mean measurement error of 62.7-pixels (SD = 27.6-  72  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  pixels). Essentially the circles were not reliably visible. The mean error for measuring the imaged centre of a 2-mm sphere at 90% transmission was 16.54-pixels (SD = 35.4pixels). At higher diameters, it was again difficult to align the crosshair at the centre of the circles. The mean error for a sphere of diameter 5-rnm at 90% was 1.81-pixels (SD = 1.1-pixels).

The small standard deviation showed that this was essentially a constant systemic offset of the software measurement.  The 2-way ANOVA showed a significant effect for both radius and transmission (pO.OOl for both main effects). There was also a significant interaction between the two variables (p<0.001).

There was also a significant difference between R = 1.0-mm, T = 90% and all other combinations (all p's O.03). Between all other remaining combinations, p was greater than 0.9. 5.1.4 Discussion Inspection of the mean absolute error and standard deviations of the nominal values shows the measurement technique had a consistent lx 1-pixel offset. This corresponds to the centre being marked in the upper left-hand coiner of the crosshair centre. A constant offset in itself does not decrease RSA accuracy. The definition of the image coordinate system on each radiograph is also subjected to this offset. Thus the resulting measured coordinates are optimal. The measurement is optimal, but still not exactly perfect because the pixels are discrete representations of continuous positions. The results of the ANOVA agreed with intuition.  Very small sphere diameters  combined with high x-ray transmissions resulted in poor image contrast and hence high  75  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  measurement errors.  The post-hoc comparison showed that for the most part,  measurement error was constant irrespective of sphere radii between 1.5-mm and 2.5mm with transmissions below 70%. The data was used to estimate the measurement accuracy of actual RSA exposures. Actual exposures of 0.8-mm diameter tantalum markers fall in the range between T = 10% and T = 50% (Figure 5-5). The simulated accuracy for 1.0-mm diameter spheres in this transmission range was 1.41-pixels.  At a resolution of 150-ppi, this  corresponded to a measurement accuracy of 0.24-mm (SD = 0-mm). Actual exposures of 3.0-mm markers correspond to T = 10% (Figure 5-6). The simulated accuracy for this case was 1.37-pixels. At a resolution of 150-ppi, the inferred measurement accuracy was 0.23-mm (SD = 0.02-mm).

The measurement accuracy using digital techniques was within one pixel in x and y. At 150-ppi scanning resolution, this corresponded to an accuracy of better than 0.24-mm.  76  /  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  5.2  RSA Reconstruction Accuracy  5.2.1 Objective There were two objectives to this experiment. First was to quantify the reconstruction accuracy of the RSA system using the biplanar cage with only an initial-calibration method.  Initial-calibration is used with the biplanar cage when it is necessary to  remove the cage from subsequent exposures to provide space for a greater range of motion and to avoid extrapolation. Second was to assess the variability introduced into the initially calibrated system by changing the x-ray cassettes. When the x-ray cassette is changed, it is impossible to exactly place the new cassette in the identical axial plane. 5.2.2 Methods A biplanar cage (model 10, Tilly Medical, Lund, Sweden) was used for calibration. The cage had a manufacturing accuracy of ± 0.01-mm and an overall dimension of 26cmx26-cmx30-cm (Figure 5-8).  The fiducial markers covered an area of 192-cm  2  while the control markers covered an area of 108-cm . The distance between the two planes was 24.9-cm. It was not possible to place the x-ray films in the exact same transverse position within the x-ray cassette. To account for this, stationary alignment markers (3.0-mm markers) rigidly attached to the imaging setup were used to align the local x-ray coordinate systems (Figure 5-7). Axial displacements of the x-rays were not accounted for.  77  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Figure 5-7: Alignment Markers Stationary alignment markers rigidly attached to the imaging setup were used to align the local x-ray coordinate systems.  The cage was imaged with two mobile x-ray sources operating at 110-kV and 5-mAs. Leg-length cassettes were used in order to image a volume larger than the cage dimensions.  The cassettes were angled at 20° to each other allowing the entire  calibration cage to be in the imaging field. The sources were approximately 2-m from their respective film cassettes. A total of seven stereo exposure pairs were made. For six of the exposures ( E X P l ... EXP6), the cage was left stationary. For the seventh exposure (EXP_7), the cage was rotated by an arbitrary angle. EXP_7 was used for calibration and the cage in E X P l through EXP_6 was reconstructed.  The reconstructed coordinate system (EXP7) was in a different  orientation than the cage in EXP_1 through EXP_6. This was intentional. When the calibration and reconstruction points are in identical positions, the accuracy is overly optimistic since the DLT parameters are biased to those coordinates.  16  78  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  control planes  fiducial planes  Fiducial Plane  Control Plane  O 160 mm  -120 m m -  O  O  O  O  O  O  O  O  120 cm  -90 mm-  Distance between 2 planes = 249 mm  Figure 5-8: Biplanar Cage Dimensions  To determine accuracy, the Matlab routine "soder" from the Kinmat toolbox was used. The routine calculated the optimum transformation matrix for a body between two poses. The routine also computed a residual error that was a measure of rigidity. The residual error is defined as the root mean square of the sum of the distances between the points of the ideal rigid body and the reconstructed rigid body. The transformation and residual error was computed between the ideal cage and the six reconstructed cages (EXP_1  ... E X P 6 ) .  Note that it was not appropriate to arbitrarily  79  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  align the ideal cage and reconstructed cages because the analysis would have been sensitive to how the coordinates were aligned (Figure 5-9).  Ideal object  Error depends on choice of coordinate alignment Figure 5-9:  Coordinate Comparisons Demonstration of why direct coordinate comparison is a poor indicator of reconstruction accuracy. The use of an optimal transformation followed by a computation of residuals errors is more consistent.  The effect of cassette changes was assessed by analyzing the variability of the reconstructed coordinates in EXP_1 through EXP_6. In these exposures, the cage was stationary hence the variability in the reconstructed coordinates was due to measurement error during digitization and the exchange of the x-ray cassettes. The former variable was already addressed in the section on measurement accuracy. A oneway ANOVA was performed on the variability of the reconstructed cage coordinates in EXP_1 through E X P 6 . The dependent variable was the standard deviation of the coordinate. The data were grouped by axes (x, y, z). 5.2.3 Results  The accuracy of reconstructing the calibration points on the biplanar cage was found to be 0.43-mm (SD = 0.03) (Table 5-2). The cassette changes introduced a variability of 0.78 -mm (SD — 0.19) in the x-coordinates, 0.55-mm (SD — 0.19) in the y-coordinates,  80  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  0.97-mrn (SD = 0.17) in the z-coordinates (Figure 5-10). The x and y axes were transverse to the x-ray sources and the z-axis was axial to the x-ray sources. The variability introduced into the coordinate values was larger than the reconstruction accuracy and is addressed in the following discussion.

This seems to indicate that the RSA system was able to reconstruct the shape of the object to a higher accuracy than it was able to reconstruct its absolute position. A possible explanation for this may lie in the different effects of object marker error and alignment marker error. Although both sets of markers are subject to the same measurement error, alignment marker measurement error introduces an offset to all other markers on the x-ray. Hence it is hypothesized that the shape of the object was affected by the relative error of the object points with respect to each other. The position of the object was affected by this error, plus the added error accumulated from the variability of alignment marker measurement from film to film. For intersegmental rigid body analysis, where the relative position of kinematic markers in each instance is more important than their absolute positions, it is appropriate to report 0.43-mm as the accuracy of the system. RSA accuracy reported in the literature ranges from 0.01-mm to 0.25-mm and 0.03° to 0.6 . ' ' ' 0  18 44 76 80  It is often unclear how the accuracy is measured in the literature. For  instance, the accuracy of measuring the distance between two points (or angle between two line segments) on a single image will not be the same as measuring the translation of a point in two separate images. The latter case incurs the error of the variability between the two exposures (Figure 5-11).  Figure 5-11:  Distance Accuracy The accuracy of measuring a distance, d, in one image, is not the same as measuring the distance from two separate images. The latter case has a lower accuracy due to variability between the images. It is unclear which accuracy was reported in literature. It is also often unclear if precision, or repeatability, has been confused with accuracy deviation from the true value.  82  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  In addition, accuracy - the deviation of the measurement from the true value - is frequently confused with precision - the deviation of the measurements from each other. Some studies have computed accuracy in the following way. '  68 79  The coordinates of a  set of implanted markers were measured from the average of two exposures. A third exposure was taken and the difference with the first average was taken as the accuracy. All three exposures were equally inaccurate and hence this method was dubious. The difficulty lies in finding a gold standard that is at least an order of magnitude more accurate. The discussion is perhaps academic since RSA has been used for over 25 years and appears to have been able to detect micromotions on the order of 0.1-mm. The performance of the current RSA system was inferior to that reported by others. Two factors can improve the system's accuracy. First, the scanning resolution of 150ppi yields a measurement accuracy of 0.24-mm.  Measurement accuracy in the  literature has been reported at 0.005-mm with manual digitizing tables. However, the best digitizing tables found to date have a resolution of 0.003-in corresponding to 0.08mm. Second, this experiment was conducted with an initial-calibration of the space followed by cage removal. A self-calibration approach where the cage remains visible in all exposures can be expected to improve accuracy. 5.2.5  Conclusion  The current RSA system has a relative reconstruction accuracy of 0.43-mm (SD = 0.03). The effect of x-ray cassette changes appears to increase variability in the absolute coordinates of the markers being imaged. Higher scanning resolution and self-calibration exposures are needed if the RSA system is to perform as well as those reported in the literature.  83  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  5.3 5.3.1  RSA Translation Accuracy Objective  The objective of this experiment was to determine the RSA system's accuracy in measuring translation.  In addition, this test aimed to quantify the difference in  translation accuracy when self-calibration and initial-calibration were used. Traditional RSA in the shoulder uses a self-calibration method where a projective cage appears in each stereo exposure. The subject is in the extrapolation region of the flat projective cage resulting in extrapolation error. It was shown in the chapter on RSA simulations that the biplanar cage has a higher theoretical accuracy. However, for shoulder kinematics, it is necessary to initially calibrate the space with the biplanar cage and then remove it in subsequent exposures. This allows for a wide range of motion within the calibrated space while avoiding extrapolation. 5.3.2  Methods  This study used the same biplanar cage as the one in the reconstruction study. The cage was imaged with two mobile x-ray sources operating at 110-kV and 5-mAs. Leglength cassettes were used in order to image a volume larger than the cage dimensions. The cassettes were angled at 20° to each other allowing the entire calibration cage to be in the imaging field. The sources were approximately 2-m from their respective film cassettes. Six stereo exposure pairs were made (EXP_1 ... EXP_6). In all exposures, the cage was left stationary while sixteen object points (eight internal + eight external) were translated using an x-z table. The object points were 3.0-mm chromium spheres embedded in radiolucent acrylic (Figure 5-12). A dial gauge with a resolution of 0.0254-mm (1/1000 inch) was used as a gold standard to measure the translations.  84  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Figure 5-12: Translation Markers Translation markers were moved in the x-z plane to generate an accuracy map inside and outside of the calibration cage. Translation was measured with dial gauges (1/1000 inch resolution).  In EXP_1 through EXP_3, the object points were translated 0, 12.7, 25.4-mm (0, Vi, 1inch) along the transverse x-axis (Figure 5-13). In EXP_ 4 through EXP_6, the object points were translated 0, 12.7, 25.4-mm (0, Vi, 1-inch) along the axial z-axis (Figure 5-14). Figure 5-15 shows the coordinates sampled by the moving object points. The variation in the vertical y-axis translation was not measured and assumed to be the same as the x-axis since both axes are transverse to the x-ray sources. Figure 5-16 shows the setup.  85  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Figure 5-13: Translation x-axis Translation markers moved along x-axis at 0, 12.7, 25.4-mm (0, A, 1-inch) intervals. l  /-direction  Figure 5-14: Translation z-axis Translation markers moved along z-axis at 0, 12.7, 25.4-mm (0, 'A, 1-inch) intervals.  86  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Exposure Points  100 0  o  50  T5  L  0  .

EXP_4 to EXP_6 were used to assess translation accuracy in the axial direction. To estimate the one-dimensional coordinate error (e , e , or e ), the one-dimensional x  y  z  translation error was divided by two. Hence, it was assumed that the translation error was equally distributed between the two points used to determine the translation.

Table 5-3 and Table 5-4 show the exposure used for calibration and the corresponding exposure used for object point reconstruction in both these scenarios. By definition, for self-calibration, there is only one set of object points. For initial-calibration, the number of sets depends on the combinations used. In this study, there were three sets of object points for transverse translation data and three sets of object points for axial translation data.  88  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Transverse direction analysis  Calibration Source  Object Points Source  EXP_1 EXP_2 EXP 3  EXPl EXP_2 EXP_3  \ \ i a l direction analysis  Calibration Source EXP_4 EXP_5 EXP_6  Object Points Source EXP4 EXP_5 EXP_6  Table 5-3: Self-calibration Pairs  In self-calibration, the calibration cage and object points were from the same exposure pair.

This was analogous to removing the cage after calibration and having only object points in the subsequent exposures.  Two-way repeated measures analysis of variance was used to compare the effects of direction of translation (transverse, axial), and calibration method (self, initial). 5.3.3 Results  The two-way repeated measures ANOVA showed a significant difference in translation accuracy depending on calibration method and direction of translation (p<0.001). Figure 5-17 shows the mean translation error when all results are grouped by calibration method. When self-calibration was used, the mean absolute translation error was 0.25-mm (SD = 0.18) for transverse translation and 0.23-rnm (SD = 0.17) for axial translation. When initial-calibration was used, the mean absolute translation error increased to roughly 0.86-mm (SD = 0.14-mm) for transverse translation and 0.54-mm (SD = 0.40) for axial translation.  89  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Figure 5-18 shows the mean translation error when all results were grouped by the direction of translation. The mean error was lower for axial translations (p<0.001). There was also a significant interaction between calibration method and direction of translation (p<0.001).  When self-calibration was used, there was essentially no  difference between the translation accuracy in the transverse and axial directions (Figure 5-19). Post-hoc SNK tests showed a significant difference in translation error between selfcalibration and all initial-calibration combinations (for all p<0.001). There was no significant difference between each initial-calibration trails (p = 0.24 to 0.49). For self-calibration, the transverse coordinate error was estimated to be 0.125-mm (0.25-mm -H 2) and the axial coordinate error was estimated to be 0.115-mm (0.23-mm -H 2). The resultant three-dimensional point reconstruction accuracy was 0.21-mm. For initial-calibration, the transverse coordinate error was estimated to be 0.43-mm (0.86-mm -H 2) and the axial coordinate error was estimated to be 0.27-mm (0.54-mrn -e2). The resultant three-dimensional point reconstruction accuracy was 0.67-mm.  90  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Effect of Calibration Method  0.7  0.6  •2  0.4  0.3  Self Calibration  Initial Cal.

For the projective cage using extrapolation, the point reconstruction accuracy at 350-mmfromthe fiducial plane was 0.14-mm. The projective cage was more than five times less accurate (5.38x). In this study, when self-calibration was used, the reconstruction accuracy was estimated to be 0.21-mm. When initial-calibration was used, the reconstruction accuracy was estimated to be 0.67-mm. Initial calibration was more than three times less accurate (3.19x). This result indicates that using the biplanar cage with initial-calibration may offer a 41% [ = (5.38 - 3.19)/5.38] improvement in accuracy over using the projective cage with self-calibration and extrapolation.  92  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  5.3.5  Conclusion  The removal of the calibration cage from subsequent stereo exposures reduced the accuracy of the RSA system with the biplanar cage by about three times. This was lower than the projective cage extrapolation error found in the RSA simulations. Hence removal of the biplanar cage is a viable alternative for large motions in threedimensions. Accuracy in the transverse direction was unexpectedly found to be worse and requires further investigation. 5.4 5.4.1  RSA Rotational Accuracy Objective  This experiment aimed to determine the accuracy of rotational measurements for the specific distribution of markers to be used in the proximal humerus and scapula. 5.4.2  Methods  Six 3-mm chromium spheres were implanted into an acetyl marker carrier. Tests in the RSA accuracy chapter showed no significant difference in measurement error between using 3-mm and 1-mm markers. The arrangement of the spheres was similar to the distribution of markers to be eventually used for future clinical testing (Figure 5-20). To assess the effect of distance between carriers on rotation accuracy, three marker carriers were rigidly mounted onto a rotation table used as a gold standard with a resolution of 1/3600° (Figure 5-21). The carrier at the centre of the rotating table was referred to as the scapula carrier (SC). The middle carrier was referred to as proximal humerus (PH) and was located at approximately 8-cm from SC. The outer carrier was referred to as the distal humerus (DH) was located at approximately 16-cm from SC. Although all carriers contained six chromium markers, only the markers appropriate for that carrier (scapular or humeral) were used in the rigid body calculations. Initialcalibration was used. Stereo exposures were taken at 0°, 90 °, 180 °, 270 and 360°. 0  These intervals covered the entire calibrated volume enabling the detection of possible spatial inhomogeneity in accuracy.  Rotation was about the y-axis of the cage  coordinate system.  93  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  Matlab kinematics routines from the Kinmat toolbox previously described were used to compute the cardan angles for the rotation. The cardan angle sequence RyRxRz was used to avoid the gimbal-lock that would result if the 90° rotation occurred about the second axis in the sequence, (i.e. RxRyRz or RzRyRx) '  94 95  Figure 5-20: Rotation Marker Carriers Arrangement of 3.0-mm diameter chromium markers used for rotation accuracy test.  Figure5-21:  RotationTestSetup Photo of rotation test setup. Six 3.0-mm chromium markers were embedded into acetyl marker carriers. From the centre of the rotating table moving radially outward the carriers are labeled SC, PH, and DH. The distribution of the markers was similar to what will be used in vivo in the humerus, glenoid, and coracoid. The table was rotated 0°, 90 °, 180°, 2 7 0 ° , 360°.  94  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  To validate that the RSA system had correctly reconstructed the object positions, the rotation of PH and DH were computed relative to SC's initial position. To assess rotation accuracy, the intersegmental rotation of PH and DH was computed relative to SC. The three bodies moved rigidly on the table and hence the intersegmental motion should ideally be zero. Two-way analysis of variance was used to assess the effect of radial distance (PH vs. DH) and axes (x,y,z) on rotation accuracy. 5.4.3 Results  The rotation of PH and DH relative to the initial position of SC is shown in Table 5-5. Almost all rotations about the y-axis were within half a degree of the value indicated by the rotating table. The only exception was the rotation of the outer carrier (DH) at 180°. The RSA system detected a rotation of only 177.95°.

A significant difference was found between the three axes with the y-axis having a significantly larger error than either x or y (p<0.002).  There was no  significant interaction (p<0.64) between radial distance and axes (Figure 5-22).  Figure 5-22:  5.4.4  Rotation E r r o r A significant increase in rotation error was found about the y-axis. This was the axis about which there was rotation. There was no significant effect of radial distance (8-cm vs. 16-cm) from the centre (reference) object. There was no significant interaction.  Discussion  The RSA system's accuracy of measuring rotation was poorer than expected. An intersegmental rotation of 1.7° was found in one instance when there should have been zero intersegmental rotation. Rotation about the y-axis involved motion in the axial direction relative to the x-ray sources. Although it was not supported by the results in the translation accuracy test, in theory and in simulation, the axial direction has the poorest reconstruction accuracy.  96  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  This may be the reason for the high errors observed about the y-axis. Vrooman's group on  reported a similar phenomenon. Another contributing factor may be the configuration of the scapula markers. These markers are very close to being collinear and others have discussed that the resultant 1 Q  accuracy is decreased.  Nevertheless, surgical exposure conditions limit the flexibility  of scapular marker placement and these results indicate the errors that should be expected for future clinical trials. 5.4.5  Conclusion  The mean absolute accuracy for measuring rotation was 0.5° about the primary axis of rotation. Significant errors were found - one as large at 1.7°. Marker configuration and axis of rotation may be the cause of larger than expected errors.  There was no  significant effect on accuracy for the intersegmental distances used (8-cm and 16-cm).  97  Chapter 5 RSA Accuracy Studies  5.5  Summary Conclusions for RSA Accuracy Studies Issue Digital Measurement Accuracy  Calibration Method n/a  Qucintity A b s u s s c d  Value  error from centre of circle  0.24-mm to 0.23-mm (0.0 to 0.02)  effect of sphere diameter & contrast  negligible for 1.0-mm and 3.0-mm with T < 70%  Reconstruction Accuracy  initial  pt reconstruction accuracy  0.43-mm (0.03)  Influence of Cassette Changes  initial  mean variability in x-coord  0.78-mm (0.19)  mean variability in y-coord  0.55-mm (0.19)  mean variability in z-coord  0.97-mm (0.17)  difference between axes  p < 0.001  translation measurement error when translation in transverse direction  0.25-mm (0.18)  inferred x-axis and y-axis error (ex and ey)  0.125-mm  translation measurement error when translation in axial direction  0.23-mm (0.17)  inferred z-axis error (ez)  0.115-mm  inferred pt reconstruction accuracy sqrt(ex*2+ey*2+ez 2)  0.21-mm  translation measurement error when translation in transverse direction  0.86-mm (0.15)  inferred x-axis and y-axis error (ex and ey)  0.43-mm  translation measurement error when translation in axial direction  0.54-mm (0.47)  inferred z-axis error (ez)  0.27-mm  inferred pt reconstruction accuracy sqrt(ex 2+ey 2+ez 2)  0.67-mm  Translation Accuracy  self  A  initial  A  Rotation Accuracy  A  A  n/a  effect of calibration method, direction of p < 0.001 translation, and interaction  initial  Rx (r = 8-cm, r = 16-cm)  0.192 to 0.336 degrees  Ry (r = 8-cm, r= 16-cm)  0.856 to 1.047 degrees  Rz <r = 8-cm, r = 16-cm)  0.425 to 0.470 degrees  no significant effect of radial distance  p > 0.05  significant difference between axes  p = 0.002  Table 5-7: R S A Accuracy Summary  Self-calibration showed the best reconstruction accuracy. The initial-calibration results from the reconstruction accuracy test and translation accuracy test were not the same (0.43-mm versus 0.67-mm). This was likely due to different methods of measuring accuracy discussed previously (Figure 5-11). In the reconstruction test, distances were calculated for points on the same image. In the translation test, the distances were calculated between points on different images. The reduction in accuracy was due to additional variability between images.  98  Chapter SCAPULAR  6.1  6  K I N E M A T I C S IN A  CADAVER  Objective  The primary objective of this test was to further assess the feasibility of using skin surface markers to measure scapular kinematics by comparing skin marker data to that obtained from bone embedded RSA markers. The hypothesis was that the motion - as approximated from a series of static positions - of the skin surface could be used to infer the motion of the underlying bone. A threshold of 5° was pre-selected as a reasonable margin of error below which the data would be considered promising. The secondary objective was to identify areas in the experimental methods that require refinement before the study could be advanced to in vivo tests. The measurement of scapulothoracic or scapulohumeral rhythm, which has been the topic of many studies, was not within the scope of this study. The concept of rhythm implies synchronized movement controlled by active muscles. This was not applicable in this cadaveric study. 6.2  Methods  Specimen  The measurements were performed on the right shoulder of a fresh cadaver (24-hrs. to 48-hrs. postmortem). The subject was a 70-year old male, approximately 170-cm in height and 70-kg in weight. The length of the scapular spine was 14.5-cm. The medial border was 15.0-cm. The skin and soft tissue thickness was measured with a caliper. The values measured were 1.0-cm on the acromion, 1.5-cm on the mid-scapular spine, 1.5-cm on the medial edge of the scapular spine and 1.5-cm at the inferior angle of the scapula. The specimen was lean with qualitatively good skin tension hence minimizing skin motion artifact.  99  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Measurement System  Roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA) was used to accurately measure the skeletal positions of the thorax, scapula and humerus. The system was previously shown to have accuracy ranging from 0.54-mm to 0.86-mm for translation, and 0.192° to 1.047° for rotations, (refer to chapter on "RSA Accuracy Studies") RSA was used to measure the positions of embedded bone markers and also the skin surface markers. A wide variety of methods can be used to acquire skin marker data such as the Optotrak 3020 system used in the pilot study. The use of RSA to measure the skin markers in this test was for convenience since radiation exposure to the subject was not an issue. Implanted Bone Markers  Five 0.8-mm chromium spheres were implanted into the scapula. Four of these were placed into the acromion. The fifth was placed in the coracoid process. Five 0.8-mm chromium spheres were implanted into the proximal humerus. Although the intended geometry was a 2-cm x 2-cm square, the hardness of cortical bone resulted in damage to one of the two implant guides. Subsequently, the resulting marker placement was dictated by the ability to easily penetrate cortical bone. Figure 6-1 shows photos of the implant instruments used.  100  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  WWW Figure 6-1: Implantation Instruments The instruments were made of stainless steel. The guide consisted of three concentric tubes (0.051"ODx0.038"ID, 0.072"ODx0.054'TD, 0.109"ODx 0.077'TD) silver soldered. The tip was beveled to - 6 0 ° . A castroveijo locking needle holder was used to manipulate the 0.8-mm balls.  A thoracic marker carrier was rigidly screwed to the thoracic spine (region of T7 to T9). This carrier served as the anatomical base coordinate system and accounted for motion of the cadaver body as a whole during the experiment (Figure 6-2).  secondary thoracic marker carrier used to extend marker into region x-rayed  3.0-mm chromium markers  primary thoracic marker carrier attached to [T7,T9] region Figure 6-2: Thoracic M a r k e r Carrier  101  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Skin Surface Markers  An arm marker carrier consisting of four 3-mm chromium spheres was strapped to the lateral surface of the proximal arm. Trial exposures showed this carrier to be out of the field of view and it was removed. Alternate means of defining the humeral local coordinates were used during the analysis. An array of sixty-eight 3-mm spheres was attached to the skin surface with super glue. Minimal glue was used and did not qualitatively appear to affect the elasticity or motion of the skin surface. The resulting array of skin markers formed fifty-one grid patches of approximately 2-cm x 2-cm. The interval was chosen to maximize surface sampling, while minimizing the risk of spheres obstructing each other on the x-ray images. The exact geometry is shown in Figure 6-3. The first horizontal row of patches lay superior to the scapular spine. The second row lay approximately over the scapular spine, and the third row lay inferior to the scapular spine. The markers extended medially beyond the medial boarder of the scapular spine and inferiorly almost to the inferior angle. Surface markers were not placed on the acromion to prevent obstruction of the bone markers implanted there. The results of the pilot study suggested that skin on the acromion overestimated scapular upward rotation due to its position along the line of action of the humerus.  102  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Figure 6-3:  G r i d on Skin Surface A total of 68 3-mm stainless steel spheres were used as skin surface markers. The markers were attached with super glue. The glue did not qualitatively appear to influence the motion of the skin surface.  Experiment  The x-ray sources were initially oriented at 60°. Trial exposures of the cadaver were taken at 0° and maximum elevation. It was found that this geometric setup was not suitable because at certain humeral elevations, the humerus would be imaged axially resulting in significant obstruction of bone and skin markers. The final orientation of the sources was at approximately 30°, which resulted in some asymmetry of the setup. With this orientation, the entire calibration cage was barely within the imaging field of the 14"xl7" x-ray cassettes. The imaging space was initially calibrated. The specimen was secured sideways and moved into the calibrated volume (Figure 6-4). Straps were tethered to the ceiling and used to hold the arm in its various positions. Trial exposures were taken to ensure the markers were visible at the extremes of the range of motion. Humeral elevation exposures were taken at 0°, 45°, 90°, 135° and maximum (-180°) elevation. Humeral retraction exposures were taken at 0°, 45°, 75° and 90° where 0° was defined as 90° of forward arm elevation in the sagittal plane. The space was re-calibrated.  103  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Figure 6-4: Specimen on Side The specimen was secured on the side and tethers were attached to the ceiling and used to mobilize the arm.  The x-ray voltage was set at 120-kV - the maximum voltage on most mobile units. The setting was chosen to generate maximum contrast between the bone and metallic spherical markers. In an in vivo subject, this high kV also ensures a higher proportion of the x-rays will pass through the subject without interacting with tissue thus minimize radiation dosage. The milliamp-seconds was varied and found to be best at 5-mAs. Digitization  The x-rays were scanned at 150-ppi using a Vision Ten x-ray scanner. Scion Image (www.scioncorp.cotn) was used to digitize the scanned x-ray images. The residual error of reconstructing each marker's three-dimensional position was used to resolve pairing ambiguity of points in any given stereo pair of images (Figure 6-5).  65  Ambiguity of  assigning labels to markers between sequential exposures was resolved by computing the distance between the markers (Figure 6-5). For implanted markers in rigid bodies, 65  the distance between markers remains unchanged from exposure to exposure. Both these processes were implemented in Matlab with custom scripts (refer to appendix).  104  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  pairing ambiguity  sequentia exposures  stereo pairs  Figure 6-5:  Pairing and Assignment Ambiguity Pairing ambiguity was resolved by assessing the residual error of three-dimensional reconstruction. Appropriate pairing was indicated by a low error. Assignment ambiguity was resolved by considering the lengths between 3-D markers. Appropriate assignment resulted in consistent lengths between reconstructed markers from one exposure to the next.  Analysis  The anatomical coordinate systems were defined using the stereo exposure at 0° of humeral elevation (Figure 6-6). The thoracic coordinate system was defined in the scapular plane as has been reported by other authors. ' '  21 54 73  The origin was set at  thoracic marker 2. The z-axis was defined normal to the scapular plane directed posteriorly. The x-axis was directed along the scapular spine from the medial angle towards the acromion. The scapular coordinate system was defined as proposed by the International Shoulder Group (http://www.wbmt.tudelft.nl/iTuiis/dsg/intersg/isg.html). The origin was set at the medial angle of the scapula. The x-axis was directed along the scapular spine towards the acromion.  The z-axis was normal to the scapular plane directed  posteriorly. The humeral external marker carrier was discarded during the exposures because it was not in the field of view. To define a humeral coordinate system, anatomical features were digitized on the two radiographs. The origin was set at the superior prominence  105  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  of the greater tuberosity. The y-axis was defined from the lateral prominence of the deltoid tuberosity to the greater tuberosity. A temporary humeral z-axis used to define the y-z plane was defined pointing posteriorly from the lesser tuberosity to the greater tuberosity. The reconstruction residual error for anatomical features was 11.3-mm for the greater tuberosity, 15.0-mm for the lesser tuberosity, and 2.2-mm for the deltoid tuberosity. For comparison, the average residual error was 4.2-mm for bone embedded markers and 5.4-mm for skin markers.  Figure 6-6:  Anatomical Coordinate Systems The thoracic coordinate system was defined in the scapular plane and its origin was set to thoracic marker #2. (The thoracic marker carrier has been digitally added. Refer to Figure 6-2 for a photo.) The scapular coordinate system was located at the medial angle of the scapula. Due to imaging difficulties, the humerus coordinate system was defined from bony landmarks observed on the radiographs.

Of the five implanted markers into the humerus, only four were visible on the radiographs. The fate of the two missing markers was unresolved. Roughly six to eight trial stereo exposures (twelve to sixteen x-rays) were taken of the specimen in attempts to ensure all markers were in the field of view and not obstructed. The purpose of the two calibration exposures, initial and final re-calibration, was to provide a check of setup rigidity throughout the test. However, between the initial calibration and the fine adjustment of the specimen in the imaging volume, x-ray source 1 was slightly bumped. As a consequence, all reconstruction was performed using the final re-calibration exposure only, and no check of system rigidity was conducted. Difficulties were encountered trying to control the axial orientation of the humerus using the tethered straps.  In addition, maintaining the humerus in the formal  anatomical position restricted humeral elevation to 90° of abduction in the coronal plane. Consequently, for 135° and maximum elevation, the humerus was allowed to internally rotate about its axis and it rotated about the glenohumeral joint to assume a position in the scapular plane. Conversely, it was not possible to use the scapular plane for the full range of motion. For exposures at 45° and 90° of forward elevation in the scapular plane, the humerus would have been imaged axially thus obstructing many markers. The presence of soft tissue made the x-ray images of the markers more complex than modelled in the measurement accuracy test and the RSA accuracy tests where there was no soft tissue surrounding the markers. Figure 6-7 shows examples of poor images. The effect of soft tissue and non-uniform x-ray beam resulted in image asymmetry that complicated centre identification. When necessary, images were enhanced in Adobe Photoshop by reducing the input gray scale.  107  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Figure 6-7:  Examples of Poor X-rays a) Image of a marker used in the measurement accuracy test. The image was symmeti'ic. b) Image of a marker used in the RSA accuracy tests where no soft tissue was present. The image was also symmetric, c) Particularly poor image of a marker in the cadaver study. Image was enhanced in Adobe Photoshop. The effect of soft tissue and nonuniform x-ray beam resulted in image asymmetry making centre identification problematic.  At 0° of retraction the humerus was imaged axially resulting in significant obstruction of many skin and all bone markers. Consequently, this stereo exposure was discarded and the retraction positions were calculated with respect to 0° of humeral elevation. At 0° of humeral elevation, it was not possible to detect one of the four thoracic markers. Since this was the initial exposure, relative to which all subsequent exposures were compared, only three markers were used to track the thoracic frame. This did not appear to have a detrimental impact on the error of calculating rigid body motion for the thoracic frame marker carriers. The average error of rigid body fitting for the thoracic marker carrier was 0.15-mm. For comparison, the average errors for the scapular and humeral marker carriers were 0.33-mm and 0.38-mm respectively. The average rigid body fitting error for the deformable skin patches was 1.74-mm. No difficulties were encountered matching stereo pairs of skin markers and correctly assigning the same label to each reconstructed marker between subsequent stereo images. However, ambiguities were encountered for the humeral and scapular bone markers. Table 6-1 shows an example of digitization data for the stereo pair at 45° of humeral elevation. The points were labeled and paired. Table 6-2 shows the point reconstruction between every possible pair along with the reconstruction error. The pairings were ranked to determine correct point pairs. In this example, the coracoid marker was correctly paired "p8-8" whereas points 5, 6 and 7 were initially paired incorrectly. The result is most easily understood by tracing the descriptions in Table 6-1 and Table 6-2.  108  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Point Origin x-axis y-axis 1 HD 2 HX 3 HL 4 HM 5 AA 6 AP 7 AM 8 CR  F1 u  F1 v  Point  68 168 68  1631 1630 1536  1090 986 937 944 633 652 666 949  556 537 522 567 593 651 698 902  Origin x-axis y-axis 1 HD 2 HX 3 HL 4 HM 5 AA 6 AP 7 AM 8 CR  F2_u  F2_v  80 180 78  1604 1604 1510  525 406 377 396 135 185 231 392  529 500 484 532 655 545 610 886  Table 6-1: Example Digitized Bone Markers Film points were tentatively labeled and paired.

Table 6-3 shows the bone marker points in the initial position at 0° of humeral elevation. The distances between the coracoid marker, denoted "CR", and all other markers on the scapula are shown. The distances between one of the humeral markers, denoted "HD", and all other bone markers are also shown. In this exposure, the scapular and humeral markers were clearly distinct. Table 6-4 shows the results of similar distance calculations. The characteristic distances in Table 6-3 were used to identify ("New Tag" column) the reconstructed markers in Table 6-4. Note that the "HD" marker was only misidentified once. In that particular case, none of the lengths, except one, corresponded to the lengths in Table 6-3.

The main results are summarized here along with graphs for the best patches. The data for three-dimensional humeral poses did not correspond to the intuitive twodimensional target poses of 0°, 45°, 90°, 135° and 180° of humeral elevation. (0°, 45°, 75°, 90° of humeral retraction) The reasons for this are addressed in the discussion. To make the data simpler to interpret, the rotations of the scapular bone markers and skin markers were plotted with respect to the targeted humeral pose rather than the calculated humeral angles about the respective axes. Figure 6-8 shows the RMS error for each patch in measuring scapular upward rotation. Only patches 45 and 51 on the lateral and lateral-superior aspect of the scapular spine had an overall error less than 5°. However, for many patches, a high error was observed at maximum (-180°) elevation. Figure 6-9 shows that in addition, patches 31, 38, 43, and 44 also measured scapular upward rotation to within 5°, deviating only at maximum elevation. These skin patches represented the region of the lateral aspect of the scapular spine, the lateral-superior aspect of the scapular spine, and a region lateralinferior to the scapular spine. The scapular attitudes in Figure 6-9 suggest that in this cadaver model, where muscle activation was not present, the scapula did not exhibit a strict continuous upward rotation below 90° of elevation. There was little change between 45° and 90°. For internal/external rotation of the scapula, the RMS error for virtually all patches was below 15°. Ten patches had an overall error less than 5° (Figure 6-10). A clustering of good patches was observed on the scapular spine - patches 41,42, 43, 44 and 45. The scapular attitudes indicate a complex pattern of motion. The scapula remained externally rotated relative to its rest position, however, there appeared to be fluctuations in the extent of rotation throughout the motion.  Ill  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  For scapular tipping, the scapular spine patches showed poor results. The RMS errors for patches 41 to 45 ranged from 15.9° to 22.2°. The best results were observed for patches inferior to the lateral scapular spine (Figure 6-11). Patches 30, 37, 38 and 39 had RMS errors ranging between 3.3° and 5.3°. The scapular attitudes suggest a pattern of motion where the inferior angle progressively tipped anteriorly.

These patches showed the most similar rotations about the x-axis (axis along the scapular spine). The patches directly on the scapular spine showed poorer results for rotation about this (scapular spine) axis. This intuitively made sense since the scapular spine patches were measuring the rotation of a cylindrical-like structure beneath the skin.  The results for humeral retraction were similar to elevation. For scapular upward rotation, the best patches were on the lateral aspect of the scapular spine, along with patches directly superior and inferior to the lateral scapular spine. For internal/external rotation, many more patches were observed to have low RMS errors. There was no discernable pattern of "good" versus "poorer" patches. As with humeral elevation, the patches on the scapular spine all showed errors below 5°. For scapular tipping, the scapular spine patches again showed poor results. The best results were again observed for the patches inferior to the lateral aspect of the scapular spine. The suggested patterns of motion for retraction were different than for humeral elevation (Figure 6-12, Figure 6-13, Figure 6-14). A range of 10° of downward rotation was observed. Internal/external rotation remained nearly constant at approximately -9° even though this is the axis of retraction. Scapular tipping showed the greatest range of  114  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  rotation. At 45° of retraction, the inferior angle was tipped anteriorly by roughly 25°. At 90° or retraction, the tipping had reduced to approximately 5°. At a retraction angle of 45°, one skin marker from the medial boarder was obstructed. The loss of the marker significantly reduced the accuracy of the two patches associated with the marker. The rotations for the two affected patches was calculated with the remaining three markers (Figure 6-15). Inspection of the rigid body fitting errors showed no relationship between the rigidity of the patch and its accuracy in measuring scapular motion. Patch 38, lying inferior to the lateral scapular spine, showed the best overall results for all rotations. For humeral elevation, the RMS errors for rotations about the z, y, and x axes were 7.6°, 3.3 °, and 3.3 respectively. For retraction, the errors for rotations about 0  the z, y, and x axes were 5.1 °, 3.7 °, and 3.5 respectively. Note that the error, ERZ = 0  7.6 was primarily contributed by the discrepancy at maximum elevation. 0  Scapular upward rotation kinematics during retraction Lateral & inferior scapular spine skin markers show similar rotations to bone embedded RSA markers 35  en <* a> IT c a  o 0} m '  •  RSA  X  R31Z  A  R38z  -  R44z  0 0  • o c u  R45z R50z - Poly.

Discussion  There are a number of issues to resolve before advancing this project to in vivo testing. The loss of two implanted markers, one in the acromion and one in the proximal humerus, must be addressed. A combination of implantation practice and instrument refinement is necessary.  An increase in the hardness of the metal used in the  instrument will assist in the puncture of the cortical bone and ensure the instrument is not damage if it is tested in a region of thick cortical bone. In addition, the excessive number of trial exposures is also a concern. A key difficulty was orienting the stereo setup such that the cage and specimen were contained in the field of view over the entire range of motion. Reducing the size of the region of interest may alleviate this problem. This can be achieved by using optoelectronic markers to track the skin surface, and using RSA strictly in the region of the glenohumeral joint.  117  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  The difficulties encountered with control of humeral orientation should not appear during in vivo clinical testing since the subject's muscles will be actively controlling scapular and humeral motion. In this study, glenohumeral orientation was a secondary issue to whether the skin patches were representative of the scapula's position. Finally, the images in Figure 6-7 demonstrate that if larger RSA markers are used with soft-tissue, it is important that the size be kept to a minimum. Poor image quality has been noted as one of the principal factors affecting overall RSA performance. ' '  33 44 68  In  the 1991 study by Hogfors' group, anywhere from 40% to 80% of their RSA data was lost due to the inability to identify markers on the radiographs. The relationship between the skin patches and scapular upward rotation was more definitive than that found during the pilot study. In the pilot study, the general region of the scapular spine was shown to have results similar to that found in the literature. The region near the acromion was previously found to over estimate rotations because it lay along the line of action of the humerus. In this study, the most lateral region of the scapular spine showed the best results. This region is qualitatively perceived to be covered by less soft tissue. Skin slippage is intuitively a greater issue in the plane of upward rotation. Hence these results agree with the notion that the markers should be placed in the region with the least soft tissue. The issue of measuring upward rotation appears unresolved beyond 135° of elevation where more significant discrepancies were found between the patches and the RSA markers. Karduna's group also recently noted this problem.  42  No authors in the literature have addressed the issue of skin markers in tracking scapular internal/external rotation.  This study showed that the ideal region for  measuring upward rotation was not necessarily the same as for internal/external rotation. In this case, the entire length of the scapular spine, perhaps excluding the most medial portion, was a good predictor. The internal/external rotation curves indicate a pattern of motion that was more complex than upward rotation or tipping.  118  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  Similar results were observed during the pilot study. However, in the pilot study, the scapula was observed to internally rotate whereas here external rotation was observed. This may be partially due to variations in the definition of the scapular plane since in both studies, the scapula's direction of rotation about the y-axis was observed to fluctuate. Alternatively, it may represent an actual difference in the pattern of motion between strict abduction in the coronal plane (pilot study), and the mixed coronal/scapular plane elevation performed in this study. It was an interesting result that the scapular spine patches poorly tracked scapular tipping. No authors have ever suggested skin markers be placed anywhere but on the scapular spine and acromion. The finding that the region inferior to the scapular spine was the optimal skin location to measure scapular tipping made sense. The curved surface of the scapular spine introduces orientation ambiguity. As the scapula rotates about the axis of the scapular spine, skin slippage along with this ambiguity increases skin patch measurement error. The patches just inferior to the scapular spine do not have the same geometric ambiguity and hence produce more accurate measurements (Figure 6-16).  Figure 6-16:  Scapular tipping In this simplified diagram, the scapular spine is modeled as a cylinder with the scapular body attached inferiorly. Rotation about the axis of the scapular spine is difficult to measure with skin surface markers due to skin slippage and the ambiguity in the axial orientation of the cylinder. The makers inferior to the scapular spine do not suffer from the same ambiguity resulting in more accurate rotation data.  119  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  The patches, which showed good results for humeral elevation, also showed good results during retraction. This demonstrates that skin patches have some degree of robustness for tracking the scapula during different motions. The repeatability of the analysis for different specimens is still to be determined. The translation data was not analysed in this study. The primary reason was the lack of clear significance for the translation data. The standard coordinates recommended by the international shoulder group " (Figure 6-17) were used for the scapula in this study v  and allows for intuitive interpretation of rotation data. However, the significance of the translation data was not readily interpreted clinically. The shoulder group's choice of coordinates system has been based on easily palpable structures such as the medial angle and the acromion.  Figure 6-17: Shoulder coordinates of the international shoulder group  http://www.fbw.vu.nl/research/Lijn_A4/shou1der/isg/proposal/protocol.hta  120  Chapter 6 Scapular Kinematics in a Cadaver  A more useful coordinate system would place the scapular origin at the centre of the glenoid fossa with the y-z plane defined parallel to the glenoid. The humerus origin could be set at the centre of the hemispherical humeral head in an orientation defined by the anatomical neck of the humerus. These structures are not easily palpable, however, they are features that may be identified stereo photogrammetricaly from radiographs. Using this new coordinate convention, the superior translation of the humerus with respect to the scapula has the immediate interpretation of superior migration of the humeral head within the glenoid socket. The skin thickness measured over the region of the scapula was constant. Hence this quantity may not be as useful a predictor of patch accuracy as intuitively thought. In addition, the patch rigidity was also found to be a poor predictor of patch accuracy. This was a somewhat non-intuitive result but is a promising sign that the method may perhaps be robust enough to measure motion on specimens with more substantial soft tissue. 6.5  Conclusions  Several experimental issues, such as reducing the field of view and change of coordinate conventions, were identified. The results continue to show promise for the use of skin marker patches. A patch of skin inferior to the lateral scapular spine was found to best track three-dimensional scapular rotations.  In general, it can be  concluded that scapular rotations about different axes can be inferred from its effect on different regions of skin. Upward rotation was best measured on the lateral aspect of the scapular spine.  Markers along the axis of the scapular spine best measured  internal/external rotation. Markers in the region inferior to the lateral scapular spine best measured scapular tipping. Contrary to conventional rigid body motion analysis methods, the results support the notion that rigid body kinematics can indeed be inferred from non-rigid measurements.  121  Chapter  7  SLIP E S T I M A T I O N USING ANALYSIS  7.1  FOURIER  Background  The use of Fourier analysis to estimate planar translations has been known for some time. ' '  More recently, methods have been proposed to also measure planar and  three-dimensional rotations using Fourier analysis. A complete discussion of Fourier analysis is beyond the scope of this thesis. Sources may be found in the references. ' '  In brief, Fourier's theorem states that any  56 67 85  arbitrary modulation can be decomposed into the superposition of an infinite number of sinusoidal modulations of infinite extent. Figure 7-1 shows how a sinusoid can be plotted versus time, versus frequency, or as a polar plot. In this way, one-dimensional Fourier analysis is a means to move between time and time frequency domains. Similarly, two-dimensional Fourier analysis relates space and spatial frequency. (A chessboard is an example where spatial periodicity is apparent in two directions.) The two-dimensional continuous Fourier transform (FT) and discrete Fourier transform (DFT) between space and spatial frequency are:  X(f ,f ) u  v  =  ))x(u,v)e- * » dudv J2  (f  u+M  —co-OD i  (KX)  x  AM  AM  j  2  J  k  = ^_ll ( «> > x  n  n  u  n  u  +  k  N  v  n  v )  ,for« = 0,l,..iV-l,v = 0,l,...W-l  / denotes continous frequency, u & v denotes continous spatial position k denotes discrete frequency, n & n denotes discrete spatial position (i.e. sampled values) u  v  122  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  a) 4£.  1/f  •  1  05/  A\ '  °/ph  a  s  e  / \  /  10 \  3C  \  / \  /  50  / 70  \ \ \ 90  /O 5 -1  •1,5  b) A/2  i  -f  f  -A/2 .  r  -f  I  f  c) Figure 7-1:  Representation of a signal a) Time domain representation of a typical sinusoid of frequency f, amplitude A and phase angle <j). b) Alternate representation in the frequency domain.

Frequency of revolution is implied.  123  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  As will be shown, there are properties of working in the frequency domain that can be manipulated to hypothetically determine the amount of scapular slippage beneath the skin. In a series of papers by Lucchese and his colleagues, it was shown that rotation and translation could be decoupled in the spatial frequency domain. " 47  52  Rotation  affects the magnitude plot of the spatial frequencies. Translation affects the phase (offset) of these frequencies. Summarizing from Lucchese's group, let Lj(k) denote the DFT of an image. Let Z-2(k) denote the DFT of the same image rotated by the rotation matrix, R(6?) and translated by the vector t. They are related by, Z_(k) = A(R(#r'  k)e-  j2nkTRm  where, k=  cosf9 -sinf? eSO(2),t = " sinf9 cos 8 Jv _  K , R(0)  l  k..  and their magnitudes are related by, |Z Ck)| = | L (RW k)| ,  2  J  1  This shows the decoupling of the rotation from the translation. The rotation only affects the magnitude of the Fourier spectrum. The method of determining translations is referred to as phase correlation. A delay in time for the 1-D case, or a translation in space for the 2-D case, is equivalent to an offset in the angle of the oscillator. This angle is referred to as phase. Translation was not assessed in the cadaveric study and hence the details of phase correlation are left to the references.  124  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  It is a property of the 2D-DFT that the first and third quadrants are reflections of each other as are the second and fourth. This Hermitian symmetry can be used to measure the rotation between the images. To identify the rotation 6, define:  A(k)-  | Z l  ( k ) | 2  | Z z ( H k ) |  2  L](0) Z,(k)|  L](0) 2  |z,(R(rJT'Hk)|  2  L](0)  where, H =  L (0) 2  +1 0 is used to reflect the spectrum about either of the frequency axes. 0 +1  It was proven by Lucchese's group that the set of points, locus, where A(k) = 0 includes two perpendicular lines which are rotated from the principal axes by 9/2. Hence, the problem of determining the rotation was solved by calculating the angle of these perpendicular lines from the axes. This was accomplished by defining a threshold radial distance from the origin, p, and determining the arctangent of each zero point in this region of interest. A histogram of the angles revealed a sharp peak corresponding to the high density of points representing the two perpendicular lines. The method of determining the rotation is best demonstrated by an example as shown in the following sequence of figures.  125  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier  Analysis  Original image windowed  Rotated image windowed  Figure 7-2: Two images with relative rotation Top: The image used as a reference.

Discrepancy is due to the finite frequency resolution of the discrete Fourier transform. Rho (p) denotes the distance from the centre of the locus for which points were considered.  During the pilot and pre-clinical studies, the skin markers were directly used for kinematic analysis. The accuracy of skin markers in measuring scapular kinematics was reduced by relative motion between the skin surface and the scapula underneath. An alternate solution may be to use the skin markers as a means of sampling a surface, under which the scapula slips. The scapula's position should be detectable through its prominent features such as the scapular spine and medial margin. The Fourier methods described in this chapter may then be used to analyse these surface features instead of the skin markers themselves. It is on this premise that this preliminary study proceeds.  130  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  7.2  Objective  The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using two-dimensional Fourier analysis to measure the rotation of scapular features beneath the skin surface and hence estimate the magnitude of scapular upward rotation. 7.3  Methods  The data from the cadaveric study was used. The 68 points from the skin surface were mapped to the scapular plane. Cubic interpolation was used to fit a 128x128 surface to the skin marker coordinates. To clarify, once the surface was fitted, the 68 skin marker points were no longer used in the subsequent analysis. The resultant surface image was padded to 700x700 and the two-dimensional DFT was taken. The padded image size was restricted by hardware limitations. The analysis was conducted on PC equipped with PentiumII-450MHz processor with 128MB of RAM.  The Fourier methods  described in the background were used to estimate the upward rotation of surface features. Ideally, in order to assess upward rotation, the overall boundaries of the skin surface should remain stationary while the surface fluctuates in response to the scapular motion beneath (Figure 7-8). The surface data from the cadaver study did not cover a region large enough to completely satisfy this idealization (Figure 7-9). Attempts were made to compensate for the boundary edges using windowing techniques that gradually brought the skin boundary to zero. Windowing has the effect of improving the performance of the DFT by reducing a phenomenon called spectral leakage. However, due to the odd geometry of the skin surface boundaries, no consistent window was found that evenly brought all skin edges to zero without truncating a large portion of the surface.  131  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  Skin Marker Scapular Features  Figure 7-8: Ideal Skin Boundary Ideally, skin markers would extend to a stationary region such as the skin over the vertebral column. Skin markers are used to sample the surface. Fourier analysis would be conducted on the interpolated surface - not on the skin marker data itself. Analysis o f the images detects the slippage in upward rotation o f the scapular features.  Skin Marker Scapular Features  Figure 7-9: Actual Skin Boundary In reality, the skin markers did not extend to a stationary region. Consequently, analysis o f the images detects the combined effect o f feature slippage rotation and skin boundary rotation.  To reduce the influence of the fluctuating boundaries, the analysis was conducted between successive images (elevation 90° and 135°, elevation 135° and 180°) instead of using the initial image as a constant reference. Without any other currently viable alternatives to smooth the skin boundary, this aspect was neglected for this initial trail and the results would be assessed accordingly. As implemented, the methods of Lucchese's group cannot distinguish between positive and negative rotations. Instead, rotations on the locus of A(k) = 0 that were found to be, say 9/2 = 88° (9 = 176°), were interpreted as 9/2 - -2° (9 = -4°). This was considered justifiable based on physical knowledge of the system under investigation.  132  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  1A  Results  Examples of the skin surface after interpolation are shown in Figure 7-10. The fluctuating skin boundary was visually apparent due to the large elevation intervals (-45°) between exposures. The lack of pure transverse rotation and translation was also readily observable. This deviation from the ideal case (example in the background section) altered the appearance of the perpendicular lines in the loci of A(k) = 0. The perpendicular lines were limited to a smaller region near the origin (Figure 7-11). In addition, the vertical axis was found to be slightly offset from centre. The two effects forced the histogram analysis (Figure 7-12) to be limited to a relatively tight region near the origin. In this case, p was less than 15 or 10 sample units as opposed to 50 sample units used in the example for the background section. The summary results from the histograms are shown in Table 7-1. For each exposure, a range of slip angles is reported. The range, as opposed to an exact value, was a consequence of the slight curving of the perpendicular lines even near the origin. The slip angle at 45° of elevation was found to range from -69° to -55°. (Negative slip indicates downward rotation.) The remaining slip angles ranged between -10° to 8°.  133  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  SkinAb90sp  SkinAb135sp  134  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  601  1  SO'  1_  •60  Figure 7-11:  -40  1  L  -20  LocusdeitaK =0, Ab90vs135  ,  L  0  _,  20  +  40  I  60  Locus of A(k) = 0 between 45° & 90° of elevation The effect of surface variation, aside from transverse rotation and translation, distorts the locus at higher spatial frequencies.  3  .l  1  Histograms theta: rotation = 175.2589, Ab96vsi35, rho in [1.10] 1 1 1 1 1 1  2:5f  2^  1.5f  Figure 7-12:  Histogram of A(k) = 0 between 45° & 90° of elevation The small number of samples was due to the reduction in the region of interest around the origin.

This phenomenon is similar to the distortion introduced by noise in the image and has been discussed by Lucchese and Cortelazzo. The slippage of the scapular features beneath the skin surface was inconsistent with the gold standard values found using RSA. The effect of the skin boundary is hypothesized to be the source of the discrepancy. To resolve this, the skin boundary must be removed. One possibility would be to alter the method of measuring the skin surface. Currently, the skin surface was measured in a Lagrangian sense where fixed points on the skin surface were measured throughout the motion. This resulted in a moving boundary that has now become problematic. To avoid this, the surface could be measured in an Eulerian sense where the measurement intervals are fixed irrespective of the skin's position (Figure 7-13). Alternatively, the Lagrangian markers could be extended to a region where little skin motion is present (e.g. the skin posterior to the spinal column).  136  Chapter 7 Slip Estimation using Fourier Analysis  Figure 7-13:  Lagrangian versus Eulerian descriptions Skin position was measured in a Lagrangian sense. This rendered the analysis sensitive to varying skin boundary effects. By using an Eulerian method of measuring skin motion, it may be easier to ensure a consistent boundary condition. Alternatively, a wider region of Lagrangian markers may be used to ensure a perimeter that is not affected by skin motion.  The "slippage" measured was not purely feature slippage in upward rotation, but instead, some type of combined effect of slip and changing skin boundary. The perpendicular lines appeared only in the region close to the origin of A(k) = 0 . Was there sufficient information contained in this region to determine the rotation of the scapula? The question was difficult to resolve completely with only one data set. The results were not highly conclusive but the methods used require refinement. The magnitude of scapular slippage appears reasonable and suggests further investigation may be fruitful. 7.6  Conclusions  A preliminary study into the use of Fourier analysis for measuring scapular feature slippage has shown inconclusive results. A key problem was the presence of a varying skin boundary that remains unresolved. The results showed feature slippage on the order of the upward rotation angles found using RSA. The analysis thus far has not been in-depth and this methodology warrants further investigation before more conclusive statements can be made.  137  Chapter  8  SUMMARY, FUTURE WORK & RECOMMENDATIONS  8.1  Summary  This thesis began with a discussion of the overall clinical motivation for studying and measuring scapular motion. The glenohumeral joint is the focal point of a great deal of shoulder pathology. Understanding the kinematics at this interface requires the threedimensional tracking of both the humerus and the scapula. Scapular kinematics has been the subject of several papers over the last fifty years. The methods have evolved from two-dimensional x-rays to current attempts at non-invasive three-dimensional techniques. A clinically practical method of measuring scapular motion is yet to be established. This thesis has focused primarily on the technical challenges involved in developing methods to measure scapular kinematics. A roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis system was used as a gold standard to assess the validity of a novel non-invasive skin marker approach for scapular tracking. The skin marker approach involved tracking a grid of surface markers placed on the skin over the scapular region. The initial feasibility of this method was demonstrated in a pilot study. Data from skin patches located centrally and on the scapular spine showed comparable results with that reported in the literature. To quantify the accuracy of the skin marker method, an RSA system was set up. A number of questions were raised during this process. In order to answer them, a simulation environment was developed in Matlab. A flat projective cage was compared  138  Chapter 8 Summary, Future Work & Recommendations  to a biplanar cage in the shape of a cube. The original RSA analysis method developed by Selvik was compared with the DLT analysis method commonly used in other areas of stereophotogrammetry.  Other parameters affecting accuracy were also assessed.  The simulation showed that the most accurate three-dimensional RSA system should use a biplanar cage with DLT analysis. An experimental investigation of the RSA system's accuracy was undertaken. The digital measurement accuracy was found to be within l x l pixel. The accuracy was found to be independent of marker diameter (1, 2, 3, 4, 5-mm tested) provided there was adequate contrast in the image (x-ray transmissibility < 70%). The reconstruction accuracy was found to be 0.43-mm. Using self-calibration, the translation accuracy was found to be 0.25-mm in the transverse direction and 0.23-mm axially. Using initial-calibration, the translation accuracy was found to be 0.86-mm in the transverse direction and 0.54-mm axially. Using initial-calibration, the rotation accuracy ranged from 0.192° about the x-axis to 1.047° about the y-axis. The x-y plane was transverse to the axis of symmetry between the x-ray sources. The skin marker method was tested in a fresh cadaver. The rotations measured with the skin markers were compared to those measured with bone embedded RSA markers. A number of experimental issues, such as implantation techniques and excessive trial exposures, were identified for refinement and should be addressed before advancing this study to the in vivo stage. A finer grid was used in this study and the overall results were encouraging. A single patch located inferior to the lateral scapular spine was found to best track the scapula in all three-dimensions. More generally, the rotation of the scapula could be determined by considering different patch regions along the spine of the scapula and in the region superior and inferior to the lateral scapular spine. Patch accuracy appeared to be independent of patch deformation and soft tissue thickness. Through the pilot study and the cadaver study, this thesis has demonstrated the feasibility of using a grid of skin markers to track scapular motion. In addition to  139  Chapter 8 Summary, Future Work & Recommendations  upward rotation, the results have quantitatively shown complex internal/external rotation and scapular tipping. These latter two have not been fully described in the literature and hence constitute a significant deficiency in the overall understanding of scapular motion and how it affects the environment at the glenohumeral joint. 8.2  Future Work & Recommendations  The next stage in this ongoing study is to test the performance of the skin marker grid in vivo. Ethical approval was applied for and obtained to proceed with this next stage. A few revisions are required to the ethics application. Primarily, the geometry of the setup should be modified to allow more space for motion. This will have an impact on the radiation dose calculations. The method for computing radiation dose is described in the appendix on x-ray radiography. To date, no subjects have been tested in vivo. Difficulties have been encountered recruiting patients. One reason for this may be the lack of a rehabilitation component to the experimental protocol. An amendment to the protocol may involve a concurrent study to assess the effect of a novel rehabilitation regime on glenohumeral orientations. Exactly what are favorable glenohumeral orientations remains to be investigated in the literature. The concurrent study would involve two imaging sessions - one prior to rehabilitation and one after a designated time period of rehabilitation. The number of stereo exposures in a single session could be reduced to maintain a similar overall radiation dose. There are also a number of technical issues that should be addressed. The methods used in the RSA accuracy study should be tested with the RSA simulator to further demonstrate the validity of the simulation system. At present, the validity of the simulator is based on the assumption that measurement accuracy is the primary source of error outweighing variables such as film distortion and x-ray beam inhomogeneity. The results of Yuan and Ryd using Selvik's analysis methods support the validity of the RSA simulation environment.  100  140  Chapter 8 Summary, Future Work & Recommendations  Although the RSA GUI environment can be used to perform actual data analysis, its utility could be improved. Additional functionality for circle detection, integrated 89  stereo point matching, integrated point assignment, and integrated kinematics analysis along with other minor revisions would vastly enhance the utility of the current version of RSA GUI. Finally, although the skin patches have been shown to exhibit rotations similar to that of the scapula, they are not exactly equal. A preliminary investigation was conducted into using two-dimensional Fourier analysis to measure upward rotation slippage of scapular features beneath the skin surface. The method found slippage on the order of the rotations found using RSA. The input data were far from ideal resulting in skin boundary effects. Refinement of the method has been left to future investigations. A wide variety of surface measurement techniques remain unexplored. ' The fields of 9 99  range imaging, stereophotogrammetry, and image analysis are rich with tools that may be adapted for accurate close range measurement. This thesis has hopefully demonstrated some measurement techniques, identified some issues, and presented some novel ideas that will eventually contribute to the long-term development of a clinically practical, non-invasive, accurate method for measuring human scapular kinematics.  141  A p p e n d i x  X-RAY  A  RADIOGRAPHY  A. 1 General X-Ray Setup Figure A - l shows the typical setup of an x-ray imaging system.  Electrons are  accelerated through a potential between the cathode and the tungsten anode. When the electrons strike the anode a variety of interactions may occur such as compton and rayleigh scattering. The interaction of interest is the energy released when the electron interacts with the nucleus of the tungsten atom. As the electron decelerates, energy is released in the form of x-rays. This "breaking" release of energy is referred to as Bramstrulung radiation. The x-ray photons strike the subject where some interact (scatter) and others do not. Ideally, the film should capture only non-interacting x-rays since it is not possible to know the origin of those x-rays that have undergone scattering. The beam passes through a grid to remove as many scattered x-rays as possible before striking the film cassette.  142  Appendix A X-Ray Radiography  kV  cathode e" source mAs  j x-rays  scattering at subject grid to remove scatter x-ray film  Figure A - l : X-ray Imaging Setup  A.2 A  Control of Image Quality comprehensive description, including extensive examples, of controlling  radiographic image quality may be found in Fuchs's Principles of Radiographic Exposure, Processing and Quality Control.  14  A.2.1  Density and Contrast  Density refers to the darkness of the x-ray image, it is measured by taking the logarithm of the opacity of the x-ray film where opacity is defined as the light stopping power of the film. Contrast refers to the difference in density between light and dark regions of an image. An ideal x-ray image has high contrast between the structures of interest, and adequate density for the human eye to observe this contrast. A.2.2 kV  The kilovoltage, kV, refers to the potential energy change through which the electrons from the cathode are accelerated towards the tungsten anode. The energy of the electron is directly proportional to the kV and subsequently, the maximum energy of the x-ray spectrum is limited by this value. The absorption of x-rays by a material is roughly proportional to the cubed of its atomic number. Different materials have  143  Appendix A X-Ray Radiography  different capacities to stop x-rays hence kV is used to generate contrast in the x-ray image.  The kV should not be used to control density although clearly, a more  penetrating beam will produce a denser x-ray image. As a rule of thumb, a 15% increase in kV will increase density by a factor of 2. A.2.3  mAs  The mAs is the product of the current measured in milliamperes (coulombs per second) and exposure time (seconds) and refers to the total number of electrons (coulombs) striking the tungsten anode. The density of the x-ray image is directly proportional to the mAs.  Doubling the number of electrons results in double the number of x-ray  photons, which results in double the image darkness. A.3  Control of Dose  The International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICRP) presents regulations regarding the control of dose. X-ray interaction is a random process and a vast number of studies have been published addressing the issue of determining radiation dose > > > > > - > > ' 7,92,92 2  !3  26  31  34  36  38  45  62  7  A. 3.1 Half- Value Layer (HVL)  The half value layer is a measure of the beam penetration. It is defined as the number of millimeters of aluminum the beam must pass through to reduce the beams intensity by half. If a beam's half value layer is too thin, that is an indication that the beam has poor penetration and consequently, a significant amount of radiation will be absorbed by the subject before the beam exits. The minimum value of HVL at various kV is specified by standard regulations .  vm 84  A.3.2  Filtration  The purpose of filtration is to remove low energy x-ray photons from the beam. As indicated earlier, the beam contains a spectrum of x-ray energies. Very low energy  vl  " Bureau of Radiological Health name changed in 1982 to Center for Devices and Radiological Health  144  Appendix A X-Ray Radiography  photons which will be uniformly absorbed by the patient and thus not contribute to the image contrast. Filtration removes these components and thus prevents unnecessary dosage to the patient. A.3.3  Entrance Skin Exposure  The entrance skin exposure ( E S E ) was previously used to determine the patient dose. However, the measure is deficient. A given E S E to the hand is clearly not equivalent to an equivalent E S E to the abdomen where there is a greater amount of soft tissue which absorbs significantly more ionizing radiation. A.3.4  Effective Dose  The effective dose ( E ) was introduced in the 1990 recommendations of the ICRP. It is a measure of detriment that accounts for the specific organs irradiated and characteristics of the x-ray beam. It is an updated quantity from the effective dose equivalent ( E H ) presented in 1977. Whereas before it was mentioned that a given E S E to the hand and abdomen was not the same, a given E to the hand and abdomen may be considered to have the same overall detriment to the patient. Of course, the specific exposure conditions to the hand and abdomen would be different to produce the same E.  A.3.5  Methods of Determining Effective Dose  Several authors have discussed the problem of computing the effective dose to a patient. ' '  37 45 92  Below are the relevant equations used to determine the effective dose.
