The purpose of this study was to search for constant and reliable reference points on the computed tomographic scans of scoliotic spines to measure vertebral rotation. Several methods using different sets of reference points on computed tomographic scans were tested for reliability. Two methods that gave minimum variation between the readings are presented here with interobserver and intraobserver reliability on 17 girls with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The selection of reference points… CONTINUE READING
