The authors report a radiographic method for measuring the axial rotation of vertebrae in degrees and its use in 99 patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The offset of the pedicle images from the vertebral body center and a "depth" estimate measured radiographically in a population of patients with scoliosis permitted calculation of axial rotation by means of a simple mathematical formula. It was found that measurements of vertebral rotation can be made clinically from single-plane… CONTINUE READING
