Chiropractic imaging listing has been an integrated component of different Chiropractic techniques and, as such, much emphasis has been made on its diagnostic value and its application in patient treatment protocols.
In fact, some techniques advocate its accuracy to the extent that it represents a road map to delivering adjustments.
However, both accuracy as well as the reproducibility of such a listing, and perhaps more importantly, its correlation with patient clinical presentations are questionable.
During this presentation reference has been made to several cases which demonstrate the lack of correlation, and point out bio-mechanical factors affecting the visualized changes in plain film studies, irrelevant to the so-called listings.
Furthermore, a review of the current literature seriously questions the evidence-based value of such listings.
