Kyphosis Rendering Recumbent Imaging Impossible
Sagittal images of the lumbosacral
(6A) and thoracic (6B) spines in the upright-seated position
shows compression of two thoracic vertebral bodies. This was
ultimately found to be due to osteoporosis. The patient suffered
from sufficiently marked kyphosis to render recumbent imaging
impossible by either computed tomography or MRI.
