Figure 2: Measurements of Kyphotic angle: (a) Dickson method, a line is drawn along the posterior margin of the bodies of the healthy vertebral above and below the site of of disease, angle K is the angle of kyphosis; (b) Lateral spine radiography used for measuring the kyphotic angle and (c) Konstam and Blesovsky (Medical Research Council) method, is by determining the angle between the upper-end-plate of the normal vertebra proximal to the affected vertebrae and the lower-end-plate of the normal vertebra distal to the affected vertebrae. Angle K increases with increase in the angle of kyphosis. Derived from the internet, www.slideshare.net
