    Validity of radiographic measurements in classifi cation of Thoracolumbar injuries: Statistical analysis

    Tarek Aly* and Hesham ElGazzar

    Introduction: Although there are many classifi cation systems for assessing the thoracolumbar injuries, it is of paramount importance to make the right clinical decision in treatment of thoracolumbar injuries is to precisely measure the radiographic vertebral parameters. Previous reports described the various radiologic parameters and the measuring techniques. The available radiologic parameters assess the following parameters in the injured spine: Sagittal alignment, vertebral body compression, and spinal canal dimensions. Another problem is different measuring techniques for those parameters which add more confusion in data collection that refl ect on the decision making.
