An image is worth a thousand words and an accurately calibrated image is worth much more! You spent a great deal of money on your CR or DR imaging system -- wouldn't you like to be
able to make an accurate measurement on those images?
Metron lets you calibrate your images so you can make meaningful measurements within them.
One way to ensure accurate calibration of images is to make use of the calibration hardware we provide. Calibration Aids for Metron is your guide to learn or review the tools available with this software related to equine. For companion animal table-based radiography systems, helpful background information is available in the Radiographic Calibration with Metron document.
However, is calibration truly accurate? Yes. There have been several independent studies performed which show that it is. Here
are some of those papers:
1) Evaluating the Measuring Software Package Metron-PX for Morphometric Description of Equine Hoof Radiographs
2) Diagnostic Accuracy of Digital Photography and Image Analysis for the Measurement of Foot Conformation in the Horse
