Magnetic Resonance in Scoliosis

Most scoliosis is idiopathic (of unknown cause) and has no associated problems other than vertebral deformity itself. In this sense the most useful to detect them in childhood is the physical examination in the consultation.

It will also serve as a reference point in monitoring the evolution of the curve during growth. In most cases with these imaging tests will be more than enough.
