Caption: Twisted spine. Frontal 3D CT (computed tomography) scan of the spine in a case of scoliosis (sideways twisting of the spine) in a 17-year-old patient. Scoliosis can develop during childhood, and the treatment depends on the cause. In severe cases, surgical intervention is carried out to straighten the spine. This scan shows the lower (lumbar) and thoracic (dorsal) regions of the spine. The spinal bones (vertebrae) are separated by intervertebral discs (brown). Either side of the vertebral bodies are the vertebral processes where the back muscles attach to the spine. Parts of the pelvic bones are seen at bottom right and bottom left.
