An integrated computerized database and radiographic image analysis system for total knee and hip replacement is currently under development at the University of Texas Medical School. Measurements are made rapidly and accurately for a wide variety of prostheses. The results are automatically stored in a database for statistical comparisons. The system will prove valuable in postoperative care. However, the most significant contribution of the proposed system would be to compare the measured parameters from the radiographs of the patients with the predicted outcome based on the stress analysis of the preoperative configuration with the designed prosthesis in place. Such a study would provide necessary feedback to justify or modify the stress analysis models, which are utilized in designing the prostheses
