Lesson from Orthopaedic Dictionary!

Cobb’s Method.
A technique for measuring the angle of the scoliotic curve on an anteroposterior radiograph of the spine.
First,determine the superior and inferior end vertebrae,the superior end vertebrae is the last one in which the superior border poits to the concavity of the curve to be measured .The inferior end vertebra is the last one whose inferior border still points toward the concavity of the curve to be measured.
Then draw intersecting perpendicular lines from the superior and inferior surface of the inferior vertebra.The angle formed by these perpendicular lines is the angle of curve.
Also called Cobb-Lipmann Method

Prosthetist needed for Hike Kilimanjaro Trek

Hello, We are organising a trek to Hike Kilimanjaro in October 2010 to raise funds for the 2010 Amputee Games. We have 12 people interested to date of which six are amputees. We think it would be sensible to have a qualified Prosthetist on the trek with us, just in case anyone needs adjustments. It would be awful if someone had to pull out due to their prostheses. We will only ask the prosthetist to cover his tour costs (about £1,900) through his/her fund-raising rather than the full
£3,500.
If you are interested in joining us for the Hike KilimanjaroTrek or would just like to know more, why don't you come along to the meeting on Saturday 17th October, where we will talk about the event and discuss fund-raising ideas. Refreshments will be provided. Stay and join us for lunch after.

Meeting venue: Welbeck GroupLevel 3130 Wood StreetLondonEC2V 6DL Just off Cheapside, by St Paul's. - Card Galore and Ted Baker on the corner of Cheapside. Closest tube stations - St Paul's (Central Line), Bank Station, Mansion House (District) Liverpool Street station, Blackfriars station or Cannon Street (all very close)
