August 14, 2015 — EOS imaging announced two EOS system installations at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in late July. The devices have been installed at New York-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and New York-Presbyterian/Allen Hospital.

The two installations at the New York-Presbyterian campuses are concurrent with the recent recruitment of three prominent spinal surgeons as part of an expansion of the hospital’s orthopedics program and the creation of a state-of-the-art comprehensive spinal surgery hospital in northern Manhattan.

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 50-85 percent less than digital radiography and 95 percent less than basic computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as related software solutions.

The EOS Micro Dose option, recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, allows a further drastic step towards the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) by bringing pediatric spine follow-up exams at a dose level equivalent to a week of natural background radiation on Earth.
