In a previous issue of this journal, we published a report entitled “Creation of Stereo-paired Bone Anatomical Charts Using Human Bone Specimens for Radiation Education” To understand how the bone specimen is visualized as an X-ray image, we newly created a bone specimen stereo-paired X-ray anatomical chart by adding the X-ray images of the same bone specimen. When a bone is X-rayed, the surface structure and internal structure of the bone are visualized as a composite image of the difference in X-ray absorption, and each bone becomes a unique X-ray image. Therefore, we took stereo-paired X-ray images of the bone specimens by the same method as the stereo-paired anatomical chart of the bone specimens. Then, we arranged the stereo-paired X-ray images and surface images of the same bone specimen in the one sheet to be readily compared. Similar to the previous bone specimen anatomical charts, these data of X-ray image anatomical chart were also made into an electronic file, so that we can do the three-dimensional observation of bone X-ray images even at the place of radiological examination or at home through electronic media. Until now, none of the specialized anatomy books and pictorial books are available for stereoscopic viewing of bone specimens and bone X-ray images. However, this stereo-paired X-ray image anatomical chart enabled us to learn accurate three-dimensionalization of bones by comparing the bone surface morphology and bone X-ray images.
