Imaging in adult scoliosis: preoperative assessment and postoperative complications

Adult scoliosis rates range from 2 to 32%. Surgery for scoliosis is common. Accurate and surgically relevant information should be provided to the referring surgeon from pre- and postoperative imaging. There are various methods to correct scoliosis surgically with the end points correction of the curve and relief of symptoms. This is achieved through the placement of spinal instrumentation with a goal of osseous fusion across the instrumented levels. There are many potential postoperative complications. The initial and postoperative imaging, types of surgery, and hardware are reviewed along with the common early and late complications with relevant illustrations
