Abstract

Advances in MR imaging technologies, as well as the widening of their availability, boosted their use in the diagnosis of spinal disorders and in the preoperative planning of spine surgeries. However, the most consolidated approach to the assessment of adult patients with spinal disorders is based on the analysis of full standing radiographs (posteroanterior and laterolateral views). In this article, the radiographic spinal and pelvic parameters, which have relevance in the clinical management of adults with spinal disorders, are summarized.
