Kyphosis Evaluation Using SPINESCAN®
The Correlation Between Radiological Evaluation of Kyphosis and Evaluation Using SPINESCAN®

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of SPINESCAN® with standard lateral x-rays of the spine in patients monitored for kyphosis.

Kyphosis is usually a developmental deformity of the spine in the sagittal plane. Once diagnosed, serial X-rays are used for followup. These are usually required at yearly intervals.

SPINESCAN® is a computerized digital inclinometer, design for evaluating angular spine deformities.

Patients examined in the spine clinic with recent X-rays will be examined with SPINESCAN® and it's results compared with the classical radiological assessment.
