EOS imaging has installed its EOS system at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble Alps (CHUGA), a hospital facility for osteoarticular surgery in children and adults.
CHUGA is the 20th university hospital center to acquire an EOS system, and the new system will be dedicated to the center’s clinic as well as to clinical research activities.
With more than 2,100 beds, CHUGA employs nearly 8,000 professionals, including 1,700 doctors. It has an advanced technical platform and provides highly specialized care. The center’s teams are recognized for their excellence in orthopedic surgery, particularly in the field of advanced surgical techniques assisted by navigation or robotics.
The new EOS system will be located in the pediatric radiology department within the pediatric section of the hospital. It will be used in the care of both pediatric and adult patients through a collaboration with two adult orthopedic services located in the North and South Poles of CHUGA.
“The EOS system will allow us to further develop the clinical care of our pediatric patients through imaging at low radiation dose. It will also significantly accelerate our collaborative research programs with EOS on the orthopedic treatment of scoliosis with braces,” commented Professor Aurélien Courvoisier, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon.
“We are very pleased to serve the Grenoble Hospital Center for clinical and research applications,” commented Marie Meynadier, Chief Executive Officer of EOS imaging.
“The patient has always been our main concern as we work to spread low-dose, 2D/3D imaging capabilities. EOS has changed the care of osteo-articular pathologies and has become a standard thanks to lower radiation, higher accuracy, and 3D imaging of the full body, all of them valuable in choosing the most effective treatments, preparing surgical intervention, as well as in post-operative follow-up.
“On the research side, we hope to open new perspectives on the treatment of spinal deformities with braces, and will also pursue collaborative programs on the integration of the EOS examination data in the operating room.”
EOS imaging designs, develops and markets EOS®, a major innovative medical imaging solution dedicated to osteoarticular pathologies and orthopedics combining equipment and services and targeting a $2B per year market opportunity.
EOS imaging is currently present in 31 countries, including the United States under FDA agreement, Japan, China and the European Union under CE labelling, through the over 250 installed EOS® platforms representing around one million patient exams every year.
