Spine and Surface Topography Study Group

DIERS supports the research of the Spine and Surface Topography Study Group. This group of orthopaedic surgeons was formed in 2012 to assist its members in research involving spinal deformity.  The focus of the research is in using surface topography imaging techniques to create 3D models of the spine without exposing patients to any ionizing radiation.  This group hopes to evaluate surface topography techniques to see if they are reproducible, reliable, and useful in the evaluation and treatment of patients with spinal deformities such as scoliosis and kyphosis.
