Forty-five patients diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis were given MRIs and two had abnormal findings. This is much higher than found in the general population.
Comment (tk): Serious spinal abnormalities were seen, yet more subtle abnormalities are not able to be viewed at this time. Spina subluxations or abnormal proprioceptive events were not measured.
