A key anatomical consideration and determinant of surgical approach in trochlear dysplasia is the trochlear boss height (TBH), traditionally defined by measurements on plain X-rays (XR). Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is increasingly used for pre-operative planning and follow-up. However, it is unclear whether measurement of TBH on XR is applicable to MR. The aim of this study was to establish the reliability of TBH measurement on MR compared to XR.
