Several press publications have been released to introduce our system. This system provides 3D measurement on spinal curvature with a whole spine scanning. A large set of B-mode ultrasound images would be collected.

 B-mode images Volume reconstruction of whole spine

The bony landmarks in B-mode images are considered to form a profile of spine. Volume reconstruction of whole spine is formed after each scan.

By applying volume re-slicing, full spine information can be revealed in a single slice. Using the shadow line of spinous processes in the re-slices, the angle between two most turning portions can be formed. Scolioscan angle can be calculated.



Telefield Medical Imaging Limited is an innovative company focusing on medical imaging equipment research, development and production. It was established in Hong Kong since 2012.

We are collaborating with local and overseas clinics, research institutes and hospitals. During the development and clinical trial phases, we received a lot of encouraging feedback from many medical professionals/potential customers. Our promise is to provide valuable products and delighted service which is distributed to all over the world. We are committed to ensure consistent safety and high quality on our product, and provide exceptional customer service.

Scolioscan:  A Story from Innovation, Research, Development to Product

Scolioscan was invented, developed and manufactured in partnership with a local university in Hong Kong. Our product will be a great tool to assist professionals not only in scoliosis screening and close monitoring without exposing patients to unnecessary radiation risk of X-ray, but also providing flexible treatment plan for patients who have different types of scoliosis.

Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine with Cobb angle greater than 10 degrees. Scoliosis is a common condition involving C- or S-shaped lateral curvature of spine associated with rotation.

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, also called AIS is the most common types of scoliosis among children in adolescence. The prevalence of AIS is 2-4% of the general population. It accounts for majority cases (80%) of idiopathic scoliosis. Curve progression is SIX times faster than adults.
