The Orthopedic Department of the University Hospital of Groningen (AZG) developed a method which made it possible to use a frontal X-ray image to obtain specific quantities. These quantities were used to described the spine mathematically with help of a software program. The University of Groningen (RUG) participated in some of these projects. Philips Medical Systems (PMS) developed a software program which combines a frontal and a lateral X-ray image to obtain a reconstruction of a spine. A specific spine deformation exists, called "scoliosis", which is characterized by lateral deviation and axial rotation of the spine. Patients suffering from scoliosis have to be exammed several times a year in a hospital. This examination should therefore be as little time consuming as possible for the medical doctor and should try to reduce the burden on the patient. The question posed now became: how to integrate those existing methods into one software product, considering maximum flexibility and usability. The solution chosen will be described.
