The 3D analyses of spinal shapes and postural features give a great number of data. The global patient posture includes his pelvic morphology and tilting, and his pelvic and spinal balance. In some scoliotic spines, the spinal curve belongs to a unique plane. In other scoliotic patients, the spinal curve shows several plane regions. The spinal structures(More)
This paper presents a new study of the geometric structure of 3D spinal curves. The spine is considered as an heterogeneous beam, compound of vertebrae and intervertebral discs. The spine is modeled as a deformable wire along which vertebrae are beads rotating about the wire. 3D spinal curves are compound of plane regions connected together by zones of(More)
In the study of spine, two approaches exist. Clinicians still measure directly, either on X-ray films or on digitized images, a small number of angular values characterizing the profile of deformed spines. 3D software programs exist, but they describe the spinal features calculated from a large set number of inputs. An alternative approach is proposed for(More)
The goal of this paper is to access to pelvis position and morphology in standing posture and to determine the relative locations of their articular surfaces. This is obtained from coupling biplanar radiography and bone modeling. The technique involves different successive steps. Punctual landmarks are first reconstructed, in space, from their projected(More)
This study presents numerical tools, based on biplanar radiography, allowing to analyze the 3D changes in position and length of the various spinal segments with respect to the pelvis which occur between the standing and sitting positions. Three asymptomatic adult subjects and twelve adult patients with low back pain or scoliosis had biplanar calibrated(More)
