Adult spinal deformity (ASD) may be classified as idiopathic (ID) or degenerative (DD) (or other) based on classifier's perception, the reliability of and factors inherent to which remain unknown. The aim of this study is to evaluate the inter- and intra-observer reliability of surgeons' perception in differentiating ID from DD and to identify the determinants of this differentiation.
