Abstract: The aim of the present research is to evaluate the relationship, between an X-ray based method (i.e. the Raimondi method), and rasterstereography in the evaluation of Vertebral Rotation(VR) in a sample of Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. Methods A total of 25 patients (9 males; mean age: 14 ± 3 years; mean height 160.7 ± 11.9 cm; mean weight: 52.4 ± 10.7 kg) were considered for the present analysis. The mean Cobb angle was 30°± 9°. The evaluation of VR on radiographs was made using the Raimondi Method regolo (Marrapese Editore - Demi S.r.1., Rome). Rasterstereography was performed by means of Formetric 4D® (Diers International GmbH, Schlangenbad, Germany). For the purposes of the present research we analyzed the VR obtained by Raimondi Method and rasterstereography in all those vertebrae of both in thoracic and lumbar spine, in which the Raimondi Methods confirmed the presence of VR. Correlations between rasterstereographic and radiographic measurement of VR were calculated, both for the whole sample and for thoracic and lumbar spinal segments considered separately, using Spearman's correlation coefficient by rank (rs) Result.When applied to the entire spine, measurement of VR by means of the two methods highlighted a significant correlation (r=0,52; p< 0,0001). A significant correlation was found also when lumbar and thoracic VR were considered as separated groups (r=0,30, p=0,024 and r=0,47, p=0,002, respectively). Conclusion Rasterstereographic evaluation of VR shows a good correlation with the Raimondi Method, thereby confirming the possibility of use this non-invasive method for deformity assessment in AIS patients.
