May 14, 2015 — EOS Imaging announced a new online service offering that allows hospitals to outsource 3-D modeling from EOS stereo-radiographic images. The 3-D models will be generated at EOS’ Canadian subsidiary in Montreal.

The 3-D models and associated, automatically computed clinical data will be available for spine, hip and knee for aid in therapeutic decision, surgery planning and control. EOS 3D Service will also provide 3-D modeling of the ribcage for research purposes as well as for the design of scoliosis braces.

EOS has already begun to offer this new service, and a first agreement has been signed with the Setting Scoliosis Straight Foundation (SSSF). SSSF is a not-for-profit foundation that supports the Harms Study Group (HSG) in understanding and developing treatments of spinal deformities in children and adolescents. HSG, formed in 1995, is a collaborative cohort of worldwide surgeons who perform comprehensive, multi-center research studies and share the results to advance the techniques of spinal deformity correction. EOS 3D Service to SSSF allows the Harms Study Group surgeons access to 3-D data for their patients undergoing scoliosis surgery. 

“EOS' modeling capabilities fit seamlessly into our strategic plan to research and identify new spinal deformity treatment techniques and we couldn't be more pleased to partner with the company as the first users of the EOS 3D Service” said Michelle Marks, executive director of the SSSF.

The EOS system provides full-body stereo-radiographic images of patients in functional positions, in both 2-D and 3-D, as well as related software solutions. EOS exams require a radiation dose 50-85 percent less than digital radiology and 95 percent less than basic computed tomography (CT) scans. The new EOS Micro Dose option, recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, allows a further drastic step towards the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle by bringing pediatric spine follow-up exams at a dose level equivalent to a week of natural background radiation on Earth.
