A REVOLUTIONARY ADVANCE IN IMAGING TECHNOLOGY
EOS is the brilliant evolution of a Nobel Prize-winning scientific breakthrough that allows for fast, stress-free, low dose exams for children and adults with hip, knee or spine conditions. It’s particularly ideal for children who require multiple X-rays during the course of their treatment, such as patients with scoliosis.
THE BEAUTY OF EOS: WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU AND YOUR CHILD
The EOS exam is fast, painless, and uses a radiation dose that is “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” (ALARA*). Today, more and more healthcare professionals are striving to keep radiation dose to a minimum based on long-term risks associated with radiation exposure. With EOS, you can rest assured that your child will be treated with best-in-class orthopedic imaging technology at a reduced dose.
*ALARA is a term used by the medical community to refer to a safety principle for minimizing radiation doses and the release of radioactive materials by employing all reasonable methods.
REMARKABLE IMAGE QUALITY FOR IMPECCABLE CARE
EOS exams are unique because they capture both the front and side view of your child’s body at the same time. These images are of consistent high quality from head to toe — with no magnification. That means accurate diagnoses, measurements and 3D models without high radiation or costly, time-consuming exams. With EOS, your medical team can offer personalized care based on your child’s unique anatomy throughout their care journey.
EOS MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN DIAGNOSING, TREATING AND MONITORING ORTHOPEDIC CONDITIONS
That’s why leading hospitals around the world include EOS in their imaging suite.
- EOS is revolutionizing the planning and treatment of orthopedic conditions
- It’s delivering more precise measurements than standard X-ray technologies
- It’s stress-free and fast: EOS scans take 20 seconds or less to complete
- Most importantly, EOS uses a low dose of radiation: patients scanned by the EOS system receive 50-85 percent less radiation dose per image than a standard X-ray without a reduction in image quality.
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING
During an EOS exam, your child is either sitting or standing for localized or full-body images in a natural, weight-bearing position. No lying down, no turning over. The result: beautiful, information-packed images that allow doctors to better understand and view interactions between the spine and lower limbs.
What’s more, EOS has the capability to model skeletal anatomy in 3D for even more precise measurements, clinical parameters and treatments.
SAFE SCANS, BRIGHT FUTURES
EOS is a radically new vision for orthopedic imaging. With its characteristic blend of advanced imaging and a low dose of radiation, EOS opens the door to truly safe, satisfying and personalized orthopedic care.
