On the Radiographs MRIs, the distance between the FH and lateral tibial cortical bone was simulated in projections parallel to surgically rele- vant axes. Then, the Pearson correlation coefficient between the distance of the FH to the lateral tibial cortical bone and the Introduction projection plane causing this was determined.
