Close-range photogrammetry (CRP) has been used extensively in medical applications, such as craniofacial mapping and scoliosis screening to obtain three-dimensional data. Advantages of this method over stadiometers and laser scanning are(i) non-contact and non-invasive, (ii) instantaneous imaging, (iii) highly accurate, and (iv) allows for dynamic analysis of structures.
This paper presents the development and application of a field-based CRP technique for studying diurnal variation in the geometry of young adult male spines.
