This study aimed to determine normal values of three parameters commonly used to determine malunion by investigating intact scaphoids on sagittal computed tomography images from healthy individuals. We analysed 62 normal scaphoids and found the mean height-length ratio, lateral intrascaphoid angle and dorsal cortical angle to be 0.58, 27° and 128°, respectively. These measurements had good-to-excellent, poor-to-moderate and moderate-to-good inter- and intra-rater reliabilities, respectively. This study provides information on normal parameters of the scaphoid that may inform clinical decision making when assessing malunion. We suggest that the lateral intrascaphoid angle should be used with great caution as a measure of deformity.Level of evidence: III.
