A model-based radiostereometric analysis (MBRSA) is a method for precise measurement of prosthesis migration, which does not require marking the implant with tantalum beads. Instead, the prosthesis pose is typically recovered using a feature-based 2D-3D registration of its virtual model into a stereo pair of radiographs. In this study, we evaluate a novel intensity-based formulation of previously published non-overlapping area (NOA) approach. The registration is capable to perform with both binary radiographic segmentations or non segmented X-ray images. In contrast with the feature-based version, it is capable to deal with unreliable parts of prosthesis. As the straightforward formulation allows efficient acceleration using modern graphics adapters, it is possible to involve precise high-poly virtual models. Moreover, in case of binary segmentations, the non-overlapping area is simply interpretable, useful for indicating the accuracy of the registration outcome. In silico and phantom evaluations were performed using a cementless Zweymüller femoral stem and its reverse engineered (RE) model. For initial pose estimates with difference from the ground-truth limited to 4 mm and 4° respectively, the mean absolute translational error was not higher than 0.042+-0.035 mm. The error in rotation around the proximodistal axis was 0.181+-0.265°, error for remaining axes was not higher than 0.035+-0.037°.
