Answer

A small study found that computerized photogrammetry, a novel method for nonradiographic evaluation, exhibited equivalent scoliosis angle measurements in 16 patients compared with the traditional Cobb radiographic method. Although more studies are needed to assess this tool, it may have potential for use as a coadjuvant tool in serial monitoring of scoliosis treatment. [84]
