Objective: The acetabular version following total hip arthroplasty is an important prognostic factor. Computer navigation serves as a precise tool during hip arthroplasty, which requires precise measurement to verify the effect of the procedure. Wan and colleagues have reported an innovative method for measuring acetabular radiographic version with an ordinary goniometer. Our objective was to study the precision of this method. Methods: We derived the underlying mathematical principle of Wans method and produced a correction formula and chart. Forty-eight computer- synthesized radiographs were used to study the method and its mathematical correction. Ten real radiographs were used to detect intra-observer difference. The paired t -test was used for statistical analysis. Results: There was a significant difference between synthetic acetabular radiographic version and the measurement obtained with Wans method p < 0. 05, but there was no difference after mathematical correction p == 0.15. For smaller radiographic version < 20
