摘要In our governmental scoliosis screening program, Angle of Trunk Rotation (ATR) measured with a Scoliometer and Moiré Topography are evaluated. Those screened positive for suspected scoliosis will have x-ray assessment. Subjects with Cobb angle≥20° are referred for specialist care. There were cases with Cobb angle≥20° are referred for specialist care. There were cases with Cobb angle < referral threshold of 20° thus being subjected to unnecessary x-ray exposure. Our objective is to determine if ultrasound can identify subjects “for specialist referral” or “not for specialist referral” to reduce unnecessary x-ray exposure.
