    Dear All
    How do you measure leg lenght using an ultrasound?

    The only way known so far s to use a CT leg length, nothing else.

    Also the follow up period was only 10 weeks. I would like to see the confidence interval etc. at 6 months and 12 and 18 months. This may give a realistic outcome.

    The size of the group may be too small to have power.

    What sort of 'inserts' were they using? Heel lifts or full length lifts? How much of the LLD were they posting - the whole amount, half or something else? And how do you measure LLD with ultrasound?
