Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis: Classifying, Assessing, and Monitoring using Surface Topography Asymmetry AnalysisDownload
The radiation dose and the associated lifetime risk of developing cancer is a problem justifying the use of surface topography (ST) as an alternative to radiographs for monitoring scoliosis. The current ST methods mainly rely on marker placement and fail to describe the 3D aspect of the scoliosis...
While the common method for diagnosing and monitoring adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is X-ray radiographs from which a Cobb angle is measured, studies have shown that high radiation exposure is linked to high risk of cancer, particularly, for children and women. This thesis describes...
