We are pleased to announce that Professor Yongping Zheng's project " A Novel Radiation-free Assessment for Scoliosis Using 3D Ultrasound Imaging" has won the Outstanding awards from the Faculty Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Knowledge Transfer 2020/21.
Prof. Zheng has invented a way to harness 3D ultrasound imaging technology to monitor the spinal condition scoliosis in children. The innovative solution makes the assessment of scoliosis both easier and safer. Prof. Zheng has been working on the development of a 3D ultrasound solution for scoliosis diagnosis since 2006. His research has demonstrated that 3D ultrasound technology can be used for both spinal imaging and spinal deformity measurement, with the novel volume projection method able to generate a radiography-like image of the spine.
The Outstanding Awards winners will receive a cash prize of HK$10,000 for individual awards.
Our hearty congratulations to Prof. Zheng for his achievements!
