"we may have been underestimating the size of many dinosaurs"

The CT scan showed that the hadrosaur's vertebrae, which museums commonly stack together, are actually spaced a centimeter apart. That means we may have been underestimating the size of many dinosaurs.

For how long have we been making paintings and life size statues of Ancient dinosaurs? Almost everyone has seen the movie Jurassic Park.
We all can picture T. rex in our heads even though the beast lived millions of years ago.

How incorrect is this now?

Everything about dinosaurs is changing all the time. New information is always being discovered, so dinosaurs renderings an displays will alway be changing.

I saw another article in a dino publication I get similar to these findings about sauropds being actually taller than we previously thought due to underestimating the cartilage between leg bones.

Very interesting stuff...

That is true. Not to mention that there is plenty of evidence now to suggest that the usual view of theropods having scaly, reptilian skin is incorrect. They probably look more like strange looking birds (with feathers).

Yep. Especially the smaller theropods and theropod newborns.

And even some bizzaro dinos like the therizinosaurs:
