“…The 2003 examination was performed with equipment designed for computer-aided evaluation of body posture and using the projection Moiré phenomenon, now commonly employed in screening diagnostics [ 31 , 32 ], and facilitating accurate and reliable quantitative assessment of numerous parameters, both in sagittal and frontal plane [ 33 ]. To ensure appropriate accuracy, the examinations were conducted in conformity with generally accepted standards [ 15 , 17 , 18 , 31 – 36 ]. It was possible to obtain a 3-dimensional image by displaying lines with specific parameters on a child’s back.…”

Changes in the shape of one section of the spine tend to entail changes in the ones adjacent to or remote from the location of the original change [ 21 , 22 ].…”
