STUDY DESIGN A three-dimensional study of the thoracic pedicle (T1-T12) morphometry in Chinese patients with different body height, using reformatted computed tomography (CT). OBJECTIVE To quantify the dimensions of the thoracic pedicles and to analyze the relationship between body height and thoracic pedicle parameters. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The thoracic pedicle morphometry has been studied extensively in different populations using various techniques. Previous studies have shown a… CONTINUE READING
