Abstract A digital radiographic system using the technology of laser stimulated luminescence has been utilized for the evaluation of scoliosis at reduced exposure levels. A total of 412 examinations have been performed on children with scoliosis. Diagnostic images were produced at significantly reduced radiation exposures when compared to standard radiographic techniques. Exposure reductions of 92% to 95% were consistently achieved. Since the potential for multiple examinations and considerable radiation exposure in this patient population is high, this is a significant application in the developing technology of digital radiography.
