PURPOSE: To evaluate radiation dose and image quality of cervical spinal computed tomography scanned with low-radiation dose (LD-CT) utilizing model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR). METHODS: We retrospectively examined 14 patients (65.5 +/- 13.9 years) who underwent both standard-radiation-dose CT (SD-CT) reconstructed with hybrid iterative reconstruction and LD-CT of cervical spine. The radiation dose, objective image quality indicator, which includes signal-to-noise and contrast-to-noise...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to report a novel smartphone app technique to localise a magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) actuator, along with determining this novel technique accuracy compared to current tactile localisation techniques through an experimental study. METHODS: Five spinal surgery fellows recorded attempts localising the MCGR magnetic actuator using a novel smartphone app technique, MAGEC Wand and magnetic disc. Three attempts per technique were performed and repea...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review and meta-analysis. BACKGROUND: Three-column osteotomies (3-CO) have gained popularity in the last decade as part of the armamentarium for the surgical correction of sagittal imbalance in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD). Three-column osteotomies in the form of pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) may be necessary to achieve adequate correction for severe and rigid spinal deformity. Studies reporting improvement in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) wi...

PURPOSE: Primary cancer patients may have some symptoms and develop spinal metastases in their disease progression. This study was to report the distribution and predictive value of specific initial presenting symptoms in patients with spine metastatic disease. METHODS: The clinical information about patients with primary cancers was retrospectively collected and analyzed at their initial diagnosis from January 2008 to December 2017. The distribution and specific value of initial presenting symp...

PURPOSE: To determine the capability of the distal radius and ulna (DRU) classification for predicting the scoliosis progression risk within 1 year in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and to develop simple recommendations for follow-up durations. METHODS: Medical records of patients with AIS at two tertiary scoliosis referral centers were retrospectively reviewed for their DRU classification and major curve Cobb angles. Baseline DRU grades and Cobb angles with subsequent 1-yea...

PURPOSE: Many patients receive magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) scans post-operatively to review screw placement. Traditionally, CT is diagnostic but as metal artefact reduction sequences are advancing in MR, the necessity for both MR and CT scans is questionable. The objective is to establish the statistical agreeability of MR and CT for evaluation of adequate screw placement in posterior lumbar interbody fusion. METHODS: This opportunistic retrospective study of 58 patients...

PURPOSE: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is useful to evaluate lumbar nerves visually and quantitatively. Multi-band sensitivity encoding (MB-SENSE) is a technique to reduce the scan time. This study aimed to investigate if super-multi-gradient DTI with multi-band sensitivity encoding (MB-SENSE) is better in evaluating lumbar nerves than the conventional method. METHODS: The participants were 12 healthy volunteers (mean age 33.6 years). In all subjects, DTI was performed using echo planar imaging...
