European Scanning Centre (ESC) in London's Harley Street medical district, has installed EOS imaging's EOS System, becoming the first independent center in the UK to do so.
The EOS System offers full-body skeletal images of patients in a natural standing or seated position in both 2D and 3D, while delivering a radiation dose to support the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle of dose reduction.
EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier said that the EOS system is routinely used by medical centers around the world, with over 350,000 exams performed across 14 countries to date.
The EOS System provides clinical parameters following the scan that allow for more informed diagnosis, surgical planning and treatment of conditions including scoliosis, degenerative spine diseases and lower limb joint conditions.
ESC medical director Paul Jenkins said that the installation of EOS positions the centre as a provider of state of imaging solutions for orthopaedics and musculoskeletal pathologies.
