Measurement imprecision in vertebral morphometry of spinal radiographs obtained in the European Prospective Osteoporosis Study: consequences for the identification of prevalent and incident deformities.
Several algorithms are currently in use for evaluating vertebral deformities from plain lateral radiographs of the lumbar and thoracic spine. However, the effects of measurement imprecision as well as uncertainties over image magnification on the correct identification of prevalent and incident vertebral deformities with these algorithms has been little studied. In a pilot study for the European Prospective Osteoporosis Study (EPOS), plain radiographs were submitted to a single central evalua...Expand abstract
