To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go to https://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/UpdateSummaryFinal/adolescent-idiopathic-scoliosis-screening1. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the January 9, 2018 online issue of JAMA.
