Objective: CT-navigated implantation of pedicle screws in comparison to the fluoroscopy-guided approach seems to be a safe and simpler method for the implantation of pedicle screws into the thoracolumbar spine. The present study was carried out with the aim of drawing a comparison between the two methods[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
