SPINAL DISORDERS SCOLIOSIS DIAGNOSIS

Scoliosis Diagnosis

The patients need to be examined by a specialist first.  The suspected patients absolutely need to have their whole spinal column x-rayed while standing up. Although the X-ray method is very carefully applied as it creates some radiation exposure risk, it is the indispensable golden standard in scoliosis diagnosis and follow-up. If findings that suggest a spinal cord or nervous system disorder have been observed during the patient's examination (or if he/she has congenital scoliosis) an additional one-time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) must be conducted.
