Rasterstereographic Analysis: Kyphotic and Lordotic Angle. Kyphotic and lordotic angles were calculated from geometric analysis of the sagittal
profile, which provides the points of inflection and their respective inflection tangents
in the cervico-thoracic transition (ICT), the thoracic-lumbar transition (ITL) and
the lumbar-sacral transition (ILS). The kyphotic and lordotic angles are each spanned
by two of the inflectional tangents. b Rasterstereographic Analysis: Lateral Deviation. Lateral deviation refers to the
distance between the center of the reconstructed vertebral body and the sagittal plane
at a given vertebral level. c Rasterstereographic Analysis: Vertebral Rotation. Vertebral rotation at a given level
was estimated from surface rotation at the pertinent point of the symmetry line, using
the sagittal direction as a reference. d Rasterstereographic Analysis: Pelvic Tilt. Pelvic tilt was calculated from the height
difference of the two lumbar dimples. e Rasterstereographic Analysis: Pelvic Torsion. Pelvic torsion was calculated from
the difference of surface orientations in the lumbar dimples. It has a positive value
with posterior rotation of the right pelvic side and an anterior rotation of the left
side.
