Hello Ben, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Have you checked your doctor again who recommended this examination? Scoliosis is an abnormality of the curvature of the spine to the side. This condition can be seen with changes in the chest, shoulders, or hips for example:
one shoulder higher
one hip higher
one shoulder blade stands out more
sufferer's body leaning to one side
unequal leg length
X-rays are one of the investigations to determine the position, arch pattern, and severity of the spinal arch. The examination that you attach shows scoliosis that occurs in the thoracic spine to the lumbar spine (from thoracic bone 6 to 11 and from thoracic bone 12 to lumbar bone 3). The results of the examination also attach the angle of the spinal arch to indicate the severity of scoliosis.
Please consult with your doctor who recommends this examination. The doctor will read the results of this examination and determine the next treatment for you. The treatment recommended by the doctor depends on the patient's age, the pattern of the arch, and the severity of the arch. Treatment can include observational measures, pain relievers, spinal support corsets, or surgery. Please discuss with your doctor about further treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
