In a 5-year prospective study on idiopathic scoliosis, an attempt was made to elucidate the natural history of the disease and to determine which factors contribute to curve progression. A total of 85,622 children were examined for scoliosis in a prospective school screening study carried out in northwestern and central Greece. Curve progression was studied(More)
Bone, regardless of its type or location, is a highly vascular structure with unique features in its internal blood flow. Changes that occur in blood flow through bone have important implications in disease, and several attempts have been made to correlate vascular patterns with the clinical incidence of osteonecrosis. Examination of the arterial anatomy of(More)
Introduction All lateral spinal radiographs in idiopathic scoliosis (IS) show a Double Rib Contour Sign (DRCS) of the thoracic cage, a radiographic expression of the rib hump. The outline of the convex overlies the contour of the concave ribs. The rib index (RI) method was extracted from the DRCS to evaluate rib hump deformity in IS patients. The RI was(More)
Background Scoliosis patients typically undergo numerous spinal radiographs and exposed to relatively high doses of ionizing radiation. This has raised concern regarding the effects of this repeated exposure. Additionally assessment of spinal deformities using surface topography of the back is currently considered essential. Digital Photogrammetry can(More)
