Sažetak
A radiographic protocol consisting of CT scans done at 3, 6, and 12 months, with an additional scan at 24 months if a solid fusion is not seen earlier was proposed in evaluating lumbar interbody fusions (LIF) (with special emphasize to the use of the recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) as bone graft substitute). The questions why the scans were scheduled at those intervals especially as no patient is likely to show healing of the fusion as early as 3 months after surgery and why to perform it in all patients even those who are pain free and with successful clinical status were raised.
