ABSTRACT: Few types of angle measurementin orthopedic diagnosis process have been studied (Cobb’s Angle, Q-Angle, Bohler’s Angle and Intermetatarsal Angle). A standard and simple multifunctional angle measurement method was identified to help diagnosis and analysis work in orthopedic radiology. Some basic mathematic theorems and equations have been applied to make sure the reliability of the method. The angle measurement method was then tested in an application named Orthoknee<sup>TM</sup>with successful results.
