    Background: Literature on scoliosis screening is vast, however because of the observational nature of available data and methodological flaws, data interpretation is often complex, leading to incomplete and sometimes, somewhat misleading conclusions. ...
  • Evaluation of Reducibility of Trunk Asymmetry in Lateral Bending 

    Debanné, Philippe; Pazos, Valérie; Labelle, Hubert; Cheriet, Farida (IOS Press, 2009)
    The value of the lateral bending test is important in the assessment of spinal curve mobility and prediction of surgical outcome in the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). However, radiographic bending tests are unable to assess the ...
