Smith & Nephew Journey Deuce Bi-compartmental unit) 2 of 3 Michael L. Baird's right knee as shown in x-ray 11 June 2008
Michael L. Baird's right knee as shown in x-ray 11 June 2008, almost one year after knee replacement (Smith & Nephew Journey Deuce Bi-compartmental unit) in 20 June 2007. Status - still some stiffness and annoying pain and modest swelling requiring some meds - good flexion; strength largely restored - can function pretty much as before.
I take photo credits of these x-rays which obviously originated in a hospital lab, to the extent that I scanned the plastic prints outputted from the digital x-ray machine (no film used these days) on an Epson RX680 flatbed scanner and optimized the images in Lightroom - mostly manipulating "curves" to best expose structures.
