Functional methods utilising the effects of gravity on the upright lordotic spine were developed for both static and dynamic radiography. Static standing orthoradiography of the lumbar spine and weight-bearing joints of the lower extremities shows constitutional and functional abnormalities not visible in conventional recumbent radiography, e.g., postural scoliosis, hypo- or hyperlordosis, "kissing spine"-syndrome and signs of segmental instability. In dynamic traction-compression radiography… CONTINUE READING
