The author has examined spine kinematics using videofluoroscopy imaging combined with digital image processing. The parameters studied were instantaneous centres of rotation, intervertebral angles, angles of rotation and displacement for each vertebral joint. Parallel computation, using an array of transputers, was used. The method can be used to produce an efficient display to aid clinical diagnosis
