|Condition or disease|
The 80% of scoliosis is idiopathic and begins mostly in adolescence (10-20 years).
The young patients need to undergo several radiographic controls for a correct therapeutic balance. However, the repeated radiation exposures is associated with a greater risk of carcinogenesis even if reduced with a digital imaging technique.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the intraobserver repeatability and the interobserver reproducibility of low-dose radiographs with a HELIOS DRF (CAT) imaging system in patients with idiopathic scoliosis.
