  Title Chiropractic spinography and postural roentgenology - Part I: History of development
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1980 Jun;3(2):87-92
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

A review of the origin and development of chiropractic x-ray procedure, with emphasis on postural spinography, is presented - its first applications as a research tool; its technical improvements over the years; its attributes and deficiencies, and its use by the osteopathic and medical professions. The objectives of this review were to organize a brief historical record of the involvement of the chiropractic profession in the research and development of diagnostic radiology in general, and of chiropractic postural roentgenology in particular, for documentation purposes and to "set the stage" for subsequent discussions of present-day concepts and procedures of application. In its entirety, this historical review establishes chiropractic spinography as a commendable achievement which has benefited the health care community-at-large, as well as the chiropractic profession itself.
