March 8, 2016 — EOS imaging announced that it has received CE Mark for spineEOS, its online 3-D planning software for spine surgery based on EOS bi-planar imaging. spineEOS is the third “EOSapp” software planning solution introduced by the company, joining its hipEOS and kneeEOS products.
The spineEOS online 3-D planning software allows a surgeon to utilize 3-D imaging provided by the EOS system to create an optimized treatment plan to achieve improved sagittal alignment for pediatric patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, as well as adults suffering from degenerative or deformative spine conditions. The software, which provides a treatment simulation based on reference values, takes into account the patient vertebrae shape and position in 3-D. The expected surgical correction can be visualized and captured in a planning report. Prof. Peter Newton, M.D., at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, and Prof. Brice Ilharreborde at Debré Hospital in Paris, France, are currently conducting clinical studies using the new spineEOS planning software.
The company featured all three EOSapps at its booth at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting, March 1-5 in Orlando, Fla. The company also highlighted the EOS system and related products and services, which provide physicians with the ability to visualize a patient’s anatomy in a weight bearing position, calculate clinical parameters and plan surgeries in 3-D without needing costly, high-dose computed tomography (CT) exams, which image a patient in non-weight bearing position.
