Perlove Medical Full Frame DR, specialising in scoliosis detection in children and adolescents. Full-frame DR is the preferred imaging method for scoliosis assessment. The high quality full spine X-rays of cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral and pelvic vertebrae can clearly show the bony structures of the entire spine, and can completely assess the curvature of the entire spine, which is an important basis for the diagnosis, assessment and correction of scoliosis, which is very important for the accurate assessment of the disease.

X-rays with only half of the spine only suggest imaging information of part of the spine, which does not facilitate accurate assessment and judgement by doctors. With P&E Medical’s full-frame DR, a full spine image can be obtained in one exposure.

Scoliosis usually requires two films: a full-length orthopantomogram and a full-length lateral spine film.

  1. Full-length orthostatic spine film: Cobb’s method is used to measure the lateral curvature of the spine on the standing orthostatic film. An angle greater than 10° is considered to be scoliosis, and the severity of the scoliosis can be determined by the size of the angle.
  2. Full-length lateral spine film: To see the severity of flat back or hunchback caused by scoliosis.

Scoliosis is a very common spinal deformity in the youth population nowadays. If it is not detected in time and treated early and positively, as the degree of scoliosis continues to worsen, it causes thoracic deformity, which will lead to physical abnormalities, such as: both shoulders are uneven in height, the back is bulging abnormally, and the body is crooked, etc. Severe scoliosis will limit the development of heart and lungs, and irreversibly cause abnormalities of heart and lungs. Severe thoracic scoliosis will cause thoracic asymmetry, collapse, or even torsion and other deformities, limiting the development of the heart and lungs, irreversibly causing abnormalities in the shape of the heart and lungs; it will also affect gastrointestinal function.

The dangers of scoliosis

“Early detection, early prevention and early treatment” has become an expert consensus on the prevention and control of scoliosis in children and adolescents. Once a child is found to have scoliosis, parents should bring their children to a professional medical institution in time for a DR examination and spinal rehabilitation and correction.
