Telefield Medical Imaging pioneers Scolioscan to change the conventions of scoliosis assessment. Scolioscan integrates ultrasound, artificial intelligence and positioning technologies to achieve radiation-free and 3D imaging of the spine. It provides safe, convenient, cost-effective scanning for mass screening in schools and communities as well as close monitoring in hospitals and clinics. With the incidence of scoliosis increasing, Scolioscan will serve as powerful scientific backing in the prevention and control of the disease.
