Table 1 Results of surface topography measurement in relation to the Bunnell scoliometer measurement

From: School screening for scoliosis: can surface topography replace examination with scoliometer?

ATR scoliometer STR surface topography True positive False positive False negative True negative
≥ 7° ≥ 7° 12 13 19 931
≥ 7° ≥ 6° 15 42 16 902
≥ 7° ≥ 5° 20 113 11 831
≥ 7° ≥ 4° 24 273 7 671
  1. ATR - angle of trunk rotation, STR - surface trunk rotation.
  2. The number of children presented with the true positive, true negative, false positive, false negative results
