November 9, 2011 – EOS Imaging announced that EOS installation has been completed at New York University Langone Medical Center, a world-class patient-centered integrated academic medical center. The clinical use of EOS is planned for early 2012. The full body, ultra-low dose 3-D orthopedic imaging system is already available in 10 North American medical centers to perform radiological examinations for the management and surgical planning of common orthopedic conditions such as scoliosis and joint disease.
“The EOS system is routinely used by medical centers around the world, with more than 100,000 exams performed to date in 10 countries,” said Marie Meynadier, Ph.D., CEO, EOS Imaging. “We are very proud to finalize the installation of EOS at yet another prestigious orthopedic center in the United States. We look forward to the hospital’s first clinical experience in 2012.”
EOS allows for a single, full body or localized image with an ultra-low dose, documented to be up to nine times less than conventional computed radiography (CR) systems and more than 100 times below that of one computed tomography (CT) scan. The technology provides 3-D imaging of the patient skeleton and automatically calculates a broad range of clinical parameters essential to diagnosis and surgical planning. Images can be obtained in standing or seated weight-bearing positions to reflect the bone and joint status of the patient’s posture.
