    In publication or citation search, the name similarities of the authors, typographical errors and institutional changes can cause confusion. To prevent this, researchers need to obtain a descriptive ID. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a researcher-specific international URI with a 16-digit number.

Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: When we want to determine the difference in leg height by using only scoliosis radiographs in patients with scoliosis; we have looked for answer to the question of where should be the accurate measurement point for values that are closest to reality.
Material and Methods: In this study 129 patients of our hospital between December 2016and 2018 with scoliosis radiography and leg height graphies were detected. The actual leg height difference was calculated on leg height graphies. Afterwards, the right and left femoral head top points were determined on scoliosis graphy. A parallel line was drawn from the top of the right femoral head. By measuring the distance of this line to the top point of left femur; difference between right and left legs was calculated. The same procedure was repeated after determining the right and left acetabulum top points and right and left iliac wing top points
Results: A total of 129 patients, including 45 male and 84 female patients, were evaluated. Significant results were obtained from the correlation analysis between the leg length difference of the total patients and the distance between the acetabulum (p0,0001).Statistically significant correlation was found between iliac wing distance and femur length difference measurements (p0,0001).A significant correlation was detected between Femur head top spot difference measurements and length differences that were measured with orthoroentgenogram (p0,0001).
Conclusion: The difference between the top point of the femoral head, the acetabulum or the iliac wing can be used on scoliosis graphy which was taken during the follow-up of leg length discrepancy in scoliosis patients.
Keywords: Scoliosis; limb length discrepancy; radiography; osteogenesis.
