Abstract

Surgeons and radiologists have traditionally focused on frontal radiographs and the measurement of scoliosis curves as important tools in the management of spinal deformity. It has become evident, however, that the management of spinal deformity should use a multidimensional approach with an increased emphasis on standing lateral radiographs and the sagittal position of the spine. Furthermore, they have come to realize the critical role that the pelvis plays in the maintenance of posture. Failure to recognize pelvic compensation can lead to under-treatment and poor postoperative outcomes.
