Antro - The Anthropometric Program
Für die deutsche Version auf die Flagge klicken
The Software ANTRO supports the analysis of 19 hand bones
using measurement of an X-ray image. The measurement can be taken
with a translucent digitizer or made 'by hand'.
The program offers the following features:
- Graphic display of z-scores (deviation from the norm
in standard deviations)
- Creating mean patterns
- Computation of correlation coefficients
- Established pattern of known syndromes to compare
- (Simple) password protection
- Option to take data from literature
- The software is only available in English.
With the paper HOSENFELD, D. HOSENFELD, F., SCHAEFER, E.
GROTE, W.: IBM-PC compatible software for establishing
metacarpophalangeal pattern profiles in Clinical Genetics 1991
the software was presented to the public for the first time.
Because of the relative small amount of PCs (in hospitals)
compared to mainframes similar software was only available for
mainframe and larger machines.
The program ANTRO is free available, but not public domain.
Because the software and its purpose is very specialized,
it is probably relevant to only a few physicians and details
of availability should be discussed per
or phone. Each delivered version is registrated to watch the
spreading and usefulness. A small financial amount (30 DM or 30 USD)
for using the software regularly will be appreciated.

Its available in Postscript format and packed with gzip (360 KB).
other formats can be made available or mailed.
