The use of instant moire photographs to reduce exposure from scoliosis radiographs

Academic Article


  • A total at 258 parents with some degree of idiopathic scoliosis was monitored with both radiographs and moiré-photography to determine the degree of progression of spiral curvature. The use of Polaroid photography to document mnir6 fringe patterns proved to be a rapid and useful process for placing an instant photographic record in patient charts while conducting routine physical examinations. Standardization of procedures for making and evaluating moiré photographs reduced patient exposure to X-rays. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
