Background: The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of height measurements in patients with scoliosis at five pediatric institutions and the influence on treatment decisions. Clinical height measurements are used to monitor growth in children and adolescents and may impact treatment recommendations. To our knowledge, measurement variability of patient height in scoliosis. Investigating QSIS measurements in patients with idiopathic scoliosis, Wojcik et al. reported a SE for thoracic Q-angle of ° while the thoracic Q-angle SE in our study was °. Most notably, thoracic Q-angle SE reported in this study is less than SE in Cobb angle reported in the literature (SE=°) [ 22 ].
Jun 18, · The measurements of spinal curvatures using the ultrasound (US) imaging method on children with scoliosis have been comparable with radiography. However, factors influencing the reliability and accuracy of US measurement have not been studied. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of curve features and patients’ demographics on US . Dec 23, · Scoliosis is a spine condition that occurs when the spine curves or twists to the side. This can pull the ribcage out of position and put .
Oct 08, · “Cobb Angle” is used worldwide to measure and quantify the magnitude of spinal deformities, especially in the case of scoliosis. The Cobb angle measurement is the “gold standard” of scoliosis evaluation endorsed by Scoliosis Research Society. It is used as the standard measurement to quantify and track the progression of scoliosis. Apr 10, · Here at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic, the second step when measuring scoliosis is a medical examination of the spine and back. Two measurements can be used, the first being an X-ray examination to assess of the rotation of the spine.
