Model-based tracking of the movement of the tibiofemoral joint via a biplane X-ray imaging system has been commonly used to reproduce its accurate, three-dimensional kinematics. To accommodate the approaches to existing clinical asynchronous biplane fluoroscopy systems and achieve comparable accuracy, this study proposed an automated model-based interleaved biplane fluoroscopy image tracking scheme (MIBFT) by incorporating information of adjacent image frames. The MIBFT was evaluated with a cadaveric study conducted on a knee specimen. The MIBFT reproduced skeletal poses and tibiofemoral kinematics that were in good agreement with the standard reference kinematics provided by an optical motion capture system, in which the rootmean-squared (Rms) errors of the skeletal pose parameters ranged from 0.11 to 0.35 mm in translation and 0.18 to 0.49° in rotation. The influences of rotation speed on the pose errors were below 0.23 mm and 0.26°. The MIBFT-determined bias, precision, and Rms error were comparable to those of the reported model-based tracking techniques using custom-made synchronous biplane fluoroscopy. The results suggested that the further use of the clinical imaging system is feasible for the noninvasive and precise examination of dynamic joint functions and kinematics in clinical practice and biomechanical research. ? 2020 by the authors.
