A method for measurement of left-right asymmetry of the back shape is presented. The procedure is based on an analysis of the surface curvature distribution. As a result, a "sym-metry line" (line of least asymmetry) on the back and an asymmetry function is obtained. According to the evaluation procedure the data are essentially independent of a reference coordinate system. The results are to be compared with radiographic findings of the scoli-otic spine.
