Caption: Scoliosis of the spine. Coloured SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) scan of the whole body of a patient showing right thoracic scoliosis (curvature) of the spine. The patient is seen from the front (at left) and from behind. Bones of the skeleton have absorbed a radioactive tracer (Technetium-99m) and appear to glow. Spinal curvature is seen in the upper region of the rib- cage. Scoliosis is a deformity usually beginning in childhood. The condition may also result from congenital abnormality; from polio; or due to one leg being shorter than the other. Surgery or spinal immobilization with a brace may be needed.
