From: “Simple mechanical devices did not improve pelvis positioning in AP pelvis radiographs for reliable assessment of the acetabular orientation”

Fig. 4

The pelvic orientation was exactly adjusted to the APP in all spatial planes. a Adjusted sagittal reconstruction. b Adjusted coronal reconstruction: this is the APP connecting the upper boarder of the pubic symphysis and the anterior facet of the superior anterior iliac spines. c Adjusted sagittal reconstruction. (purple line: adjusted coronal plane, APP; blue line: adjusted axial plane; yellow line: adjusted sagittal plane) d CT 3D reconstruction of a pelvic specimen adjusted to the APP (blue trapezoid)
