Abstract

PRATALI, RAPHAEL DE REZENDE; DAHER, MURILO TAVARES  and  MEVES, ROBERT. BIPLANAR IMAGING WITH TRIDIMENSIONAL CAPABILITIES: APPLICABILITY OF THIS NEW EXAMINATION TO SPINAL DEFORMITIES. Coluna/Columna [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp.67-70.  Epub Mar 16, 2020. ISSN 2177-014X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1808-185120201901222631.

This study presents details about the applicability of the new image acquisition system, called the biplanar imaging system, with three-dimensional capabilities (EOS®) to the treatment of spinal deformities. This system allows radiographic acquisition of the entire body, with a great reduction in the dose of radiation absorbed by the patient and three-dimensional (3D) stereoradiographic image reconstruction of bone structures, including the spine. In the case of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the analysis of the spinal deformity with 3D reconstruction allows better understanding of the deformity and surgical planning. In the case of adult spinal deformity, full-body analysis allows an evaluation of the spinopelvic deformity, including loss of sagittal alignment, in addition to an evaluation of compensatory mechanisms recruited by the individual in an attempt to maintain the sagittal balance. Level of evidence III; Descriptive Review.

Keywords : Radiography; Technology, Radiologic; Spine; Scoliosis; Bone Malalignment.
