May 27, 2015 — EOS imaging announced the CE mark of kneeEOS, a 3-D planning software for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) based on EOS bi-planar imaging. The company will showcase the planning suite at the 16th European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT) Congress, May 27-29 in Prague.
kneeEOS is the second software offering powered by EOS images following hipEOS. This 3-D surgical planning platform is based on EOS’ low-dose 3-D images and technology from OneFit Medical, a company acquired by EOS imaging in late 2013. kneeEOS will initially be deployed as an online service to assist surgeons in patient’s leg alignment simulation in functional position, knee prosthesis selection and placement simulation based upon 3-D images generated by the EOS system.
The EOS system provides full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2-D and 3-D. EOS exams require a radiation dose 50 to 85 percent less than digital radiology and 95 percent less than basic computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as related software solutions.
