CAN YOU SHOW ME HOW TO MEASURE COBB ANGLE?

Measuring the Cobb angle on a scoliosis x-ray is not a difficult task. It is something that anyone can learn to do with a little bit of training. When it comes to scoliosis, a lot of treatment decisions are based almost entirely around this one number, so it is important to ensure that the measurements are accurate. Your doctor should be able to explain to you how the Cobb angle is measured, and allow you to examine the x-rays yourself to ensure everything is correct. Also, the measurement of Cobb angle can differ drastically if different bones in the spine are used as reference points, so make sure the same vertebrae are used when comparing pre and post x-rays.
