One of serious pathologies of children and teenagers is scoliosis. For an objective estimation of character of current scoliosis illnesses measure corner Cobbs on radiological pictures, and describes curvature of an arch of a curvature. For the purpose of reduction of number of radiological inspections sick of a scoliosis the way of optical registration of the image on the basis of neural technologies is offered. Marker points on the reference points, exposed by the doctor automatically are distinguished by system and, further by a technique occure calculation linear and angular sizes between the lines, constructed on reference points. The given method is intended for automation of process of measurement and convenience of conducting sick by a scoliosis with the purpose of supervision over dynamics of change of a degree of deformation of a backbone at treatment. .
