Abstract

When analyzing sexual differences computed tomography sizes of the lumbar spine at median-sagittal section found that in boys as in biological andpassport age for most significantly larger or trends to larger values set for the height of the intervertebral discs (except for 21 year), the average width of the vertebral bodies and front and rear height of the lumbar spine than in girls. The height of the vertebral body in only 21-year-old boys in most cases higher than in the corresponding biological age girls. When comparing the size of the lumbar spine between boys and girls of appropriate somatotypes most significantly larger or trends to larger values set in boys mesomorphic and medium intermediate somatotypes (mainly for the height of the intervertebral discs, the average width of the vertebral bodies and front height of the lumbar spine) than girls of similar somatotypes.
