Spanish term or phrase: vértebra límite inferior
From a research paper on RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY MEASUREMENTS OF SHOULDER BALANCE IN IDIOPATHIC SCOLIOSIS. This refers to one of the orthopedic parameters measured (denoted by LIV in Spanish). I don't understand what this refers to. TIA, Jason.

En la radiografía postero-anterior de raquis completo se registraron: la magnitud de las curvas torácica proximal (CPT), torácica principal (CMT) y tóraco-lumbar/lumbar (CTLL). Además, se midió la inclinación con respecto a la horizontal de T1, de la **vértebra límite inferior** de la CPT (CPT_LIV), de la **vértebra límite inferior** de la CMT (CMT_LIV) y de la **vértebra límite inferior** de la CTLL (CTLL_LIV). El ShB radiológico se calculó mediante el Clavicle-Rib Intersection Angle (CRIA). El ángulo CRIA se define como el ángulo que forman la horizontal y una la línea que une los puntos de intersección de las clavículas con la pared costal

lowest vertebra involved

V. escoliosis. Ángulo de Cobb.

Es el ángulo que forman las líneas paralelas al platillo superior de la vértebra límite superior y al platillo inferior de la vértebra límite inferior...

ENG. The standard method for assessing the curvature quantitatively is measurement of the Cobb angle, which is the angle between two lines, drawn perpendicular to the upper endplate of the uppermost vertebra involved and the lower endplate of the lowest vertebra involved...

Source probably mix wrong terms. LVI

curvas torácica proximal (CPT) MUST - Curva Proximal Torásica
