It remains unknown if and how the polyethylene bearing in mobile bearing knees moves during dynamic activities with respect to the tibial base plate. Marker Configuration Model-Based Roentgen Fluoroscopic Analysis (MCM-based RFA) uses a marker configuration model of inserted tantalum markers in order to accurately estimate the pose of an implant or bone using single plane Roentgen images or fluoroscopic images. The goal of this study is to assess the accuracy of (MCM-Based RFA) in a standard fluoroscopic set-up using phantom experiments and to determine the error propagation with computer simulations.The experimental set-up of the phantom study was calibrated using a calibration box equipped with 600 tantalum markers, which corrected for image distortion and determined the focus position. In the computer simulation study the influence of image distortion, MC-model accuracy, focus position, the relative distance between MC-models and MC-model configuration on the accuracy of MCM-Based RFA were assessed.The phantom study established that the in-plane accuracy of MCM-Based RFA is 0.1mm and the out-of-plane accuracy is 0.9mm. The rotational accuracy is 0.1°. A ninth-order polynomial model was used to correct for image distortion.Marker-Based RFA was estimated to have, in a worst case scenario, an in vivo translational accuracy of 0.14mm (x-axis), 0.17mm (y-axis), 1.9mm (z-axis), respectively, and a rotational accuracy of 0.3°. When using fluoroscopy to study kinematics, image distortion and the accuracy of models are important factors, which influence the accuracy of the measurements.MCM-Based RFA has the potential to be an accurate, clinically useful tool for studying kinematics after total joint replacement using standard equipment.
