BACKGROUND CONTEXT Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is associated with low bone mass that could persist into early adulthood and is an important prognostic factor for curve progression. Previous studies were confined to areal bone mineral density measurement that was a two-dimensional investigation for a three-dimensional structure. Evaluation of volumetric BMD (vBMD) and other bone quality parameters are important for gaining in-depth understanding of the etiopathogenesis of AIS… CONTINUE READING
