Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has selected EOS imaging's low-dose 2D/3D imaging system for use in its orthopedic clinics.
The EOS imaging system, which delivers less radiation dose than basic CT scans, provides full-body 2D and 3D images of patients in a natural standing or seated position.
The system also calculates various clinical parameters which are essential to diagnosis and surgical planning, allowing for more informed diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic conditions including scoliosis, degenerative spine conditions and lower limb joint conditions.
EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier said the company is replacing traditional radiographic systems for obtaining weight-bearing surveys of the entire spine and lower extremities, while helping to improve patient throughput and technologist productivity and providing 3D information.
"We are pleased that the system will be available to orthopedists in the MGH community, who are at the forefront of clinical care and medical research, as we continue our focus on expanding patient access to our leading 2D/3D imaging technology at centers across the U.S," Meynadier added.
