This study have been made in order to evaulate adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AİS) patients? spinal curves on frontal plane with ?Spinal Mouse? (SM) and to compare its results with the radiography. To this study 51 AİS patients with no operation and between the age of 9 - 20 (mean = 14,4) years are included. The patients? vertebrae are evaluated with SM on frontal plane with 2 appliers twice and its results are compared to the the results of radiography. At the end of study, inter-reater (ICC = 0.91) and intra-reater (ICC = 0.87-0.91) agreement was very high. The high relation (ICC= 0,75-0,88) between SM and radiography are found out. On the measurements made by both of the appliers such results are found on curves above 40° the corelation with SM and radiography, on curves with openings bending to the left the corelation between SM and radiography (r= 0,79-0,88) are much higher than the curves with openings bending to right (ICC = 0,69- 0,87). As a result, SM with no side effects, is a rapid, easy applicable, non-invasive method and it is an alternative device that can be used in the clinic. Although it can not replace radyography, it decreases the number of radyography taken, thus, will decrease the radiation exposure of the patients. As a results, this method can be used by physiotherapists to assesment of patients and to analyse the effectiveness of exercises regularly in clinical situation.
