EOS Imaging System Installed at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City

Low-dose 2-D/3-D imaging technology adopted by the nation’s leading orthopedic hospital

April 11, 2013 — The EOS imaging system has been installed at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York, N.Y., the top-ranked hospital in the United States for orthopedic care (according to U.S. News & World Report), where it will be used to obtain high-quality orthopedic scans with reduced radiation dose.

The EOS system provides full-body images of patients in a natural standing or seated position in both 2-D and 3-D, while delivering a radiation dose reported to be nine times lower than that of computed radiography X-ray1and 20 times lower than basic computed tomography (CT) scans2 to support the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle of radiation.

The Department of Radiology and Imaging at HSS will be incorporating EOS into regular clinical care for both pediatric and adult patients.

The EOS system is able to provide a broad range of clinical parameters, allowing for more informed diagnosis, surgical planning and treatment of conditions including scoliosis, degenerative spine diseases and lower limb joint conditions. Recent research has demonstrated the advantages of holistic 3-D imaging with EOS for assessing musculoskeletal alignment, particularly regarding the spine and lower limbs.
