Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||The Correlation Between Radiological Evaluation of Kyphosis and Evaluation Using SPINESCAN®|
- Kyphosis degree (by SPINESCAN®) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
|Study Start Date:||December 2008|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||November 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Main group: patients examined in scoliosis clinic for kyphosis with recent lateral spine X-rays.
Kyphosis is usually a developmental deformity of the spine in the sagittal plane. Once diagnosed, serial X-rays are used for followup. These are usually required at yearly intervals.
SPINESCAN® is a computerized digital inclinometer, design for evaluating angular spine deformities.
Patients examined in the spine clinic with recent X-rays will be examined with SPINESCAN® and it's results compared with the classical radiological assessment.
