Imaging Studies in Spinal Muscle Atrophy

@leif On anteroposterior (AP) and lateral views of the pelvis, most patients with type II SMA are found to have developed hip dislocations. The dislocations are only temporarily symptomatic and do not influence function in these patients, because they are nonambulatory. A complete spine and scoliosis series is indicated. All patients with type II SMA and most patients with type III SMA develop a long C-shaped scoliotic curve.
