Abstract

Radiation exposure in girls with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has been reported to increase their risk of reproductive pathology. A novel non-radiographic technique to quantify scoliosis, statically and dynamically, has been developed for use in conjunction with radiographic methods. Using a three-dimensional motion analysis system, a spine and rib cage model is used to quantify clinical measurements such as Cobb angle, lateral deviation of the spine, kyphosis and lordosis, pelvic tilt and trunk rotation.
