AbstractNational Experiences in Telemedicine and eHealth: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of new method (RODIA System) to monitor mineralization of the fracture gap on digitalized xray, osteolysis or loosening around orthopaedic implants or other bone pathology. Collection of radiographs of various orthopaedic pathologies was digitized for further analysis. Image Evaluation Module and Fracture Healing Monitor Module of Relative Optical Density Image Analysis (RODIA) System  were utilized for images evaluation. Search for subtle fracture line, assessment of the bone osteolysis around orthopaedic implants, and progress of bone tumour retrospective evaluation were performed with RODIA System. Developed Relative Optical De nsity Image Analysis System (RODIA System) allows remote analyzing and measure digitized X-ray image to reliably enhance of image evaluation.
