Postoperative radiograph detailing the measurements of canal fill ratio. The blue lines represent the measurement of the width of the inner femoral cortex (F1), and the red lines those of the stem width (S1). The CFR is the ratio between the width of the stem and that of the inner femoral cortex (S1/F1). It is measured at both the upper edge of the lesser trochanter (F1/S1), and at its tip (F2/S2)
