Researchers at the University of Kragujevac have proposed a new, non-invasive 3D methodology to assess scoliosis, in which spine measurements can be performed by limiting radiation exposure and human intervention.

Non-invasive, accurate and faster scoliosis diagnosis methods may be making their way into the medical world faster than we think. Their advantages show obvious promise, and give us a positive indication that 3D patient-specific modeling could be a step closer to eliminating x-ray radiation, and improving patient diagnoses.
