Caption

Thoracic scoliosis. Frontal X-ray of the abdomen of a patient with thoracic scoliosis, as well as a previous left upper lobectomy (removal of a lobe of the lungs). Scoliosis is a sideways twisting of the spine, leading to spinal curvature. The spine (white) is seen running down centre, with the curvature clearly visible. The treatment of scoliosis depends on the cause. Treatment ranges from corrective back braces to surgical intervention to straighten the spine.
