AbstractRepeated radiography poses health concerns for patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Although radiation-free ultrasound was developed for measuring spinal curvatures, with promising results reported, its accuracy with respect to curve severity, curve apical levels, gender, body-mass index, age, and height remains undefined.
