Spinal Instability Neoplastic Score (SINS)
Determine instability risk in patients with spinal neoplasia
The spinal instability neoplastic score (SINS) helps to assess tumor related instability of the vertebral column. It has been shown to useful in guiding the mobilization or operative management of patients with neoplastic spinal disease.
Studies have reported good inter-observer agreement among both radiologists and radiation oncologists in using the score.
