a, b 63 year old man who presented a conminuted supraintercondylear fracture of the humerus. Osteosynthesis of the fracture with two plates and a 6.5 mm thick and 90 mm long screw with washer for the olecranon osteotomy. The diameter of the ulna medullary canal diaphysis at about 9 cm from the tip of the olecranon were mesured using the measuring system of the program by Centricity Enterprise Web 3.0 DICOM conformance Memo (GE Medical Systems). The results in this case were 6′42 mm in the AP view and 6′2 mm in the lateral view. The diameter and the length of the 6′5 mm screw (90 mm in this case) were measured using the measurement system, to check the results and take it as a valid reference for the measurement of the diameter of the ulna medullary canal diaphysis. c Screw diameter measurement of 6′5 mm. The zoom tool of the system can be applied without altering the measurement, which make it easier
