Video-densitometric analysis has proved useful in the study of bone remodelling, however, for more efficient results, an investigation procedure that enables the comparison of X-rays is needed. In the present research an automated method has been developed which considerably speeds up the entire procedure through the implementation of specially designed C++ software. At present, a sequence of six X-rays can be analyzed in about 1 h irrespective of the number of areas to be investigated, which can be arbitrarily increased (200 or more). Analysis is fast as well as more reliable and accurate. In clinical practice, the results offer an effective support to observation on the biomechanical behaviour of bone implant systems.
