School screening for scoliosis : methodologic considerations. Part I: External measurements.
In order to determine the applicability of school screening techniques for scoliosis, a methodologic survey was carried out within the framework of a mesurements of rib hump height, angle of trunk rotation, and of moiré topography was investigated by assessing the intraobservr and interobserver varition.
The validity of these techniques was tested by comparing their outcome to the Cobb angle.
Intraobserver variation was measured over both short and long time intervals.
