Three-dimensional reconstruction of the spine


Clinical use. Scoliosis, paramorphisms, dorsal and lumbar hyperhypociphosis are studied.

Protocol. The subject is invited to undress. It is prepared with the positioning of adhesive skin markers on pre-established points in the literature on the trunk, column, pelvis, upper limbs and is then invited to position itself on a platform at a distance preset by the cameras.

In a static standing position, the shots are taken in: front, rear, right side and left side.

Procedures. The indicators that are studied for the deviations of the column on the frontal and sagittal plane are:

1. Cobb degree measurement

2. angles of the cervico-dorsal and dorso-lumbar curves

3. Others: linear distances between various landmarks

Execution time: 1 minute at acquisition if the patient collaborates (moves little) and at each new acquisition if you want to test the variation of the Cobb degrees and the cervico-dorsal, dorso-lumbar angles using simultaneously the calibrated stabilometry (see before) or various elevations under the limbs.

Conclusions. Within 30 minutes the operator analyzes the data (indicators), prints the graphs and concludes, delivering everything to the patient in a sealed envelope.

The report written and signed by the doctor with the diagnostic conclusions, prescriptions or therapeutic or clinical in-depth recommendations (MRI, CT etc.) is delivered to the patient after the examination. If the patient is rehabilitative on the basis of disability, the project and the objective are provided as per PRI (individual rehabilitation plan).

Instrumental exams can then be repeated for normal follow-up based on the indicators to be checked over time. If, in order to check over time, the same doctor prescribes the tests to be repeated on a company request.
