A Doctor of Chiropractic must simultaneously submit five consecutive new patient cases of radiographs (or digital images, preferably .dcm format) that conform to the Orthospinology Procedure requirements. The Doctor is responsible for the application of all information taught in the classes and published in the textbook.
The reviewer, an Advanced Graduate of Orthospinology, will grade the radiographs based on strict criteria created using information from all classes and the textbook. Point values are assigned to each step, and the reviewer may award all, some, or none of the points for each criterion. A total score for each case is calculated along with a cumulative score (the sum of points awarded for each of five cases). A score of 80% or greater is required on the cumulative score to pass the examination.
