Question


  1. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness for the use of smartphone applications, smartphones with acrylic sleeves, scoliometers, and radiology or x-ray for screening and tracking changes in children with scoliosis?

  2. What are the evidence-based guidelines for screening and tracking changes in children with scoliosis?


Key Message

One evidence-based guideline was identified regarding the use of radiography to screen for scoliosis in children. No relevant health technology assessments, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials, or non-randomized studies were identified.
