AbstractA comparative analysis of two methods of measuring vertebral rotation in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is reported in this article. Nash and Moe's pedicle shift method (using plain anteroposterior radiographs) is compared with a new method using computed tomographic scans. The computed tomographic scans of the whole length of the major curve and the scout films obtained from seventeen girls aged 12.5-14 years were measured for rotation of each vertebra of the curve (total number of vertebrae measured by two methods = 173). This study has three interesting new findings: 1) Those vertebrae with Nash and Moe grade 0 had up to 11 degrees of vertebral rotation when measured using the computed tomographic method. Therefore, Nash and Moe's grade '0' is not a neutrally rotated vertebra; 2) For Nash and Moe grade 1 and 2, the computed tomographic method revealed statistically significantly greater rotation for lumbar vertebrae than thoracic vertebrae. There was a similar pattern for Nash and Moe grade 0 but these differences were not statistically significant; and 3) Simple formulae are reported to convert Nash and Moe's grades into angle of vertebral rotation as obtained by CT method separately for thoracic and lumbar vertebrae.
